    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 »

    This basilica is truly awesome! We attended a mass on Sunday morning and it was very well attended. We did a tour afterwards. The basilica is awe inspiring. Highly recommend a visit. A real treasure.  more »

    Absolutely BEAUTIFUL church. Mass was great with an amazing choir
  • February 16, 2017
    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.
