This is a seriously amazing-looking cathedral. You'll think you're in France. And it's beautifully lighted at night. Only wish I'd gone inside.

One of biggest and most architectually specialised religious buildings in MN. Grand size. Minimal info to explain history of building except in basement. Good views overlooking State Capital bldg and historical neighborhoods.

Sorry Bill, Can't accurately answer but reckon if you contact the Archdiocese Office (Google it) they would be able to assist or advise you. Failing that contact the Local tourist office ? Just make sure you don't miss it... More
