  • Great place to attend Mass. They also offer adoration in the lower level. Very beautiful areas to pray throughout.  more »
  • Looking for a great place to take photos both inside and out, try the Cathedral of St. Paul in the historical Crocus Hill area. Sunset & night photos are especially good.  more »

  • A huge Catholic Cathedral. Well kept premises. The neighborhood surrounding is full of huge Victorian homes. Make sure to go to the James Hill home located near (tour this home). Church is pretty and old. Fun thing to see for an out of Towner.
  • A huge cathedral that is well kept and is truly a site to behold. Breathtaking views inside make you feel like you’ve transported to Europe.
  • A beautiful monument rarely found outside of Europe. Any fan of architecture or history must stop by if they're in the twin cities.
  • One of the most magestic, and beautiful places I have ever seen... Awe inspiring. This is a 'must see' place in St. Paul
  • It is an awesome cathedral in downtown St. Paul. It is very beautiful in side. We took a tour and learned of the history of St Paul and the starting of the Catholic church. From a small wooden structure to what it is now.
