The cathedral is a must-see and just a short walk from the Minnesota State Capitol. Be sure to see both!

This cathedral is a must see if you are in the twin cities. It is easy to find and you can go inside to visit. Plenty of free parking is available across the street.

Striking structure to rival most European cathedrals. Free entry to tour the interior. Photographs of predecessors and construction of current structure are downstairs, even a Lego reproduction. Nice break from walking, just to sit and admire the architecture and stained glass.

The Cathedral is gorgeous and worth a visit simply for that. It is also overlooking downtown St. Paul and is host to the Crashed Ice World Championships in February which is packed but a lot of fun and highly recommended!

A beautiful church in downtown St. Paul. Definitely worth a visit. Stained glass windows were very impressive. Worth the trip.
