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).

  • Spectacular building, lots of spooky sculptures and art work, and amazing (long reverb) acoustics. It is a must see if you are into weird religious buildings.

  • I have seen enough cathedrals in Europe that I thought I had seen my last one but went with friends and glad I did. It is awesome. An old style cathedral dome with modern architecture and materials. Worth a look.
