As a native of Spain, I am used to finding cathedrals and churches all over the city. When I first arrived to the Twin Cities I was a little skeptical, as it was hard for me to imagine that there was a cathedral in St. Paul that could be compared to the cathedrals I was used to. However, I must... More

I've seen some wonderful churches across Europe, as well as here in the U.S. that might be bigger and have a few more 'bells & whistles'. Wonderful to walk around and see it in all its glory. The only thing that these cathedrals will... More

Even if you aren't Catholic, prepare to be awed when you step inside the Cathedral. It's beautiful inside. You can self-tour the whole thing yourself if there isn't a religious service in progress. Downstairs is an information desk, tiny gift shop (one display case in a corridor), and additional restrooms.

The Cathedral of St. Paul is a beautiful place for solace, reflection, and awe. It's gigantic, with fantastic stained-glass rose windows and sculptures. Worshipers and photographers alike find much to appreciate and enjoy at the cathedral.

Take your time walking around this masterpiece of art and architecture, and don't forget your camera. One of my highlights was the replica of the Pieta.
