Breathtaking to stand inside and gaze up at the beauty surrounding you. I love returning to this magic place . Ican't explain the feeling that envelopes me when I am there. Parking is free and just across the street.

The Cathedral of St. Paul is a stunning Cathedral, with wonderful architechture, art and icons and is a must see when visiting St. Paul. The Cathedral is considered one of the top ten most beautiful churches in the United States. I can't recommend enough taking time to see this beautiful Cathedral!

My wife and I came to town for a Wild hockey game and wanted to see some sights. I enjoy seeing unique buildings and architecture and I had come across this as a St. Paul landmark so we had to check it out. The outside is certainly majestic and imposing but if there's no event going on inside, go in... More

This is the most beautiful Cathedral I've ever set foot in! I can't get over all of the amazing details within. It is quite grand inside, incredibly breathtaking. I would absolutely recommend this beautiful structure as a place to visit in Saint Paul.

A Mass was ongoing when we visited so we couldn't walk through the cathedral but once you enter go to the right side and there is a very nice replica of the Vatican's Pieta. We love visiting churches and this one was worth the visit.

We took some time out for a visit to the Cathedral of St. Paul since we like to tour them all over the world. These newer US cathedrals don't stand up much in comparison to the astounding ones in Europe but many are still very beautiful. This is one of them. If you're on your way to see the mansions... More

Not even Catholic, but loved this place. The architecture is amazing. The place is absolutely stunning. The artwork was breathtaking. Could have stayed longer, but we were there only about an hour. You basically have full access to all areas, which is not how it is in all cathedrals. It was just lovely. Would highly recommend a visit!

We were here at the Cathedral for a wedding, what a majestic building, just wished we were really welcome to partake at God's table.
