With its Neoclassical architecture and copper and gold-leaf dome, Cathedral of Saint Paul is one the largest and most recognizable religious buildings in the United States. The cathedral features 24 stained-glass windows. On the inside, the life of Saint Paul is honored with a large, bronze baldachin. You can also see the statues of four evangelists. The cathedral celebrates migrations of people to Minnesota with its five chapels dedicated to the patron saints of the Irish, the Italians, the Germans, the Slavs, and the French-Canadians. Another chapel is dedicated to Christian missionaries. You can take a guided tour or opt for a self-guided tour (brochures are available inside the cathedral for a small donation).

  • 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!!!
  • Went there for my friend's confirmation. Very touching ceremony and the people there were very involved in the process and stressed their openness to others.
  • Most beautiful structure in this State of Minnesota, a tribute to Jesus our God. I am grateful that I can come to visit this church when ever I can.
  • Was able to stop in here on a weekday for a quick look around and was well worth it. Beautiful construction and open to walk freely and explore. As expected there were a few others there so be quiet and respectful if taking photos...(no flash photography and turn off camera sounds). Free parking along to street on the side as well.
  • A must visit place in Twin cities .. Join the mass here you will feel better .
