  • This is so beautiful and peaceful. Worth the visit whilst in Minneapolis about a twenty minutes walk from the leows hotel and across the road from the sculpture garden  more »
  • While not the cathedral (St. Paul's is) this other catholic church is also very impressive. The Byzantine style of the basilica does make it a bit dark and "heavy." Nevertheless, it is worth a visit.  more »

  • Absolutely BEAUTIFUL church. Mass was great with an amazing choir
  • They people are very helpful. But Jesus does say the building called "the church " shouldn't be "flashy" or try to "look" the most amazing. Im paraphrasing. For the church are the ppl. And has absolutely nothing to do w the actual building. He does say keep a guard up whilst approaching such a church for its clear its more about pride and materialism. And why is the building getting more attention? ?? Second Timothy says it all!!!!
  • Great art and architecture. If you catch a service their choir is top notch.
  • Absolutely beautiful Basilica, and surprised to find that it was the first one in the United States. Disappointed with the liturgy and the lack of reverence.
  • This place is beautiful, a "must see" when traveling to the twin Cities.

Where to stay in Minneapolis

To stay in the thick of tourist action, choose a hotel in downtown Minneapolis. This area offers many independent and chain hotels, with rooms that range from budget-friendly to high-end. You can also stay close to the area by exploring mid-range hotels just a few blocks from downtown that are set in quieter neighborhoods with fewer tourists. If you have access to a car and don't mind driving to most major attractions, you can consider a good value motel or inn just outside the city.
