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.

With the renovation completed after several years work, the beauty of the interior of the Cathedral is a site to behold. It will literally take your breath away. Make the effort to visit. You won't be disappointed!

Wonderful stained glass, pamplet available at entrance giving information about the church. Easy to find from Falls park. Lots of parking available. Had shrine outside of church. Lots of stairs to go up if you have difficulty with this

Beautiful building, inside and out after renovations. Good but somewhat echoey acoustics with 2 concerts attended there in the last year.

This church has just been re-done a year ago & is well worth a visit just to see the beauty of it. We toured it on Friday & went to mass on Sunday a.m. It is a must see when in the Sioux Falls area.

I just happened upon this by accident, when headed out on my travel and it is truly something you would have to see. I'm jealous of the reviewer who was able to go inside!! I'm sure it is every bit as grand as the outside!

We just happened on this old majestic church while driving around after dinner. We stopped to take photos and were admiring the gardens and outside grounds, when one of the priests came by and invited us in to show us around. It is beautiful inside, and reminded me of of the many cathedrals we saw in Rome. We were grateful... More
