  • Beautiful architecture! Old world type. Worth the visit. Unless you are attending the service, I would plan the visit any other time but Sunday AM as they do not allow visitors to disturb the service. 
  • Such a beautiful Catholic church. It is very large & there is a lot of history as well. If you've never seen it - it is well worth the trip.

  • Architecturally speaking, it is stunning and a site to visit in St. Paul. Nestled atop the hill overlooking the city, hosts mass (of course), annual Red Bull Crashed Ice (in January), features two pokestops and a pokegym. One star off in deference to anyone not down with the whole religion thing.
  • A truly stunning place to worship and visit. The acoustics can sometimes be a challenge, but it's so worth coming to see the artwork, the sculptures, the dome, the shrines to the international saints, and to pray.
  • This is a beautiful cathedral! The architect gets 5 stars from me!!! When I walked in for Sunday Mass, I heard the sound of violins!!! The acoustics and reverberation of the music in the cathedral was perfect!!!
  • Beautiful cathedral. We went to see the church, not a service. The architecture is amazing.
  • A must visit place in Twin cities .. Join the mass here you will feel better .
