This is a grand cathedral with beautiful architecture and windows. Quite surprising to find such an elegant structure in St. Paul. It is quite welcoming to visitors as long as you aren't there at a mass time. It is close to the state capitol which is currently under construction but looks like an amazing building. Also close to Summitt Avenue... More

I came to St Paul MN for the first time and was amazed to see this beautiful cathedral, which reminded me of cathedrals from the great European cities of Paris, Florence and Rome. The Cathedral of St Paul will amaze visitors, tourists and local residents alike, and I had no idea how majestic the whole structure is inside and out.... More

The Cathedral is one of those spaces where u just want to stand and look around awhile or sit silently and take it all in. It has a Rose Stain Glass Windows that remind me on Notre Dame, beautiful statues of the four writers of the Gospel and decorative elements honoring saints and stories of the Bible and virtues too....

I was very impressed with the replica of St Paul cathedral in Rome. The quality of the building and the interior took us back to our visit to Rome!

My family greatly enjoyed the beauty of the cathedral. If you visit, and you are a Peanuts fan, there is a park about 10 blocks away with bronze statues of the Peanuts characters. It is a small park across from the Landmark Center, on the northeast corner of W. 5th and Market Sts.

This cathedral is beautiful and it is worth taking the time to see and visit. There are many different things to see and corners to explore. This is a timeless cathedral with history and opulence. They have a tour that goes in depth and the people are very nice. Take the time to drop by

The Cathedral is as impressive inside as it is outside. It's free to the public and worth a visit. The architecture and art is impressive. Candles can be lit for a $1 donation.
