I am a sort of a history buff and the Cathedral is one of Sioux Falls most beautiful historic buildings. You don't have to be a Catholic to appreciate the craftsmanship and attention to detail that went into this building. They also have a beautiful garden to walk through.

One of the most beautiful churches we have ever seen. The entire Cathedral is something that must be visited. Stained glass windows, marble, statues, gardens

The Cathedral is amazing after the renovation, which happened in 2011. The location is great, and it can be scene miles. I have gone to the Cathedral many times, and the midnight Mass is amazing. The Cathedral is one of Sioux Falls best.

This Cathedral can be seen from anywhere downtown I decided to make the hike up the hill to check it out. The surrounding neighborhood has some fantastic historical homes that are worth seeing.

A beautiful, beautiful lovely cathedral. Just gorgeous, in a lovely neighborhood. Worth seeing. The art, sculptures, stained glass are lovely. It's an old church, and one of the largest cathedrals in the Midwest. Definitely see it.
