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).

Cathedral of Saint Paul reviews
Did a quick drop in while visiting St. Paul for a weekend getaway. Unfortunately, due to COVID there are no tours being offered. Walked around for awhile on our own though. Appeared Mass was going.... more »
This church is big and dominated the skyline around it. It appears to be built in the style of the old churches of Europe although is nowhere near as old. Very nice. more »
Truly a beautiful piece of architecture. This cathedral was just impressive as the basilica in Minneapolis and was a truly beautiful place. Be aware there is a small "museum" downstairs that gives you a timeline on when it was constructed as well as some historical photos which is neat. It was a wonderful visit and very highly recommend taking a look if you can!
Very large and nice church (cathedral). They have free tours with times listed by the entrance. Go to the basement where you will find the construction history and pictures. Elevators are at the back. Don't forget to drop a donation ;) From the outside one can see the state capitol.
