I’ve been to this church ever since I was a little kid. It’s beautiful from the outside and absolutely breathtaking from the inside. Whether you’re Catholic or Christian it’s a must see for all.

One of the best cathedrals outside of Europe. If you want the feel of Europe in Minnesota head to this cathedral on a hill!! The James Hill House is across the street.

A beautiful building, with great acoustics. Enjoy the sounds of the holidays, the scent of pine, and families singing together. A truly unique experience.

It's a must see. I've never taken anyone there that hasn't LOVED it. A great place to spend an hour and see amazing art for a small donation or FREE!

If you are in the ST. Paul area this Cathedral is one of the most beautiful in the United States. Amazing that is was build in the early 1900's. Pew near the front right side with plaque noting RFK attendance.

I've spent many hours over the years in this charming old church. Beautiful ongoing restoration keeps it's historic integrity. Growing up in St.Paul I attended weddings, graduations and solemn times of prayer and worship. Miss this beautiful sanctuary.

Note that the walk up the hill to the cathedral is a bid meandering and traffic can be heavy because of the interstate highways converging nearby, but once you get there, you don't even need to go inside--on a clear day, every shot is like...More
