“Gorgeous St. Paul Gem”
Reviewed February 25, 2014

This cathedral sits atop a hill overlooking St. Paul and is a landmark to behold! I have visited a few times and each time am in awe as I look around inside this beautiful Cathedral. If visiting St. Paul, please take the time to visit the Cathedral, it is amazing.

“Beautiful Inside and Out”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

This cathedral is a St. Paul landmark and sets majestically on the hill overlooking the downtown area where Summit Ave. winds into the capitol complex. The cathedral architecture was breathtaking and a look inside was also impressive. This is unquestionably a worthwhile site to put on your itinerary.

Wanting to visit this cathedral on my first trip to Minneapolis but finally made it to see it on my second trip. Worth it. Very serene and peaceful. Come see it yourself. God is glorified.

“Rivals the cathedrals of Europe”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

Similar to St. Peter's in Rome, with a copy of the Pieta. Open to the public if there is no mass. Only drawback - you can't climb to the top of the dome for views of the city.

“Beautiful Historical Church”
Reviewed December 23, 2013

The cathedral is a beautiful church with a enormous amount of history as it took 9 years to construct. For history buffs it has a very interesting story that is well worth the time to check it out. Parking and access was easy.
