A wonderful church for Catholic travelers. Beautiful inside and out with very welcoming staff and fellow worshippers.

Loved touring the Basilica, the church is an amazingly beautiful place both inside and out. Visit on a nice day so you can walk around the outside as well as the inside.

Attended mass on a Sunday and it was both an aesthetic and spiritual experience to worship in such a historical building. Highly recommend this to everyone.

If you enjoy seeing the architecture of churches, one of the highlights in the City of Minneapolis is this Basilica. It is very ornate and shows a little better than the Cathedral in St. Paul (which is much larger).

In a dreary city this gorgeous basilica stands out like a beacon in the night. We were so happy to see it and were as impressed with the interior. This is such a beautiful building!!! And an amazingly pious ambience like St. Mark's in venice!

I attended a wedding here in the summer of 2016 and it really was beautiful. I did not grow up catholic, so this was one of the more opulent houses of worship I've been in.

Smelled the incense on a Sunday morning. The Church basements had meeting rooms and local art hanging for gazing. Went back on Monday after morning Mass and walked the stations of the cross (it was Lent). Beautifully kept up and places to sit or kneel...More
