Definitely spend some time in this historic building. It is beautiful! I appreciated the ability to walk around and view the stained glass windows, religious statues, and spend time in prayer.

We attend the Basilica Block Party every summer as a cousins event. Good music, a wide variety of food and an overall great experience. We love touring the basilica every year to see the on going improvements.

Another beautiful church near downtown Minneapolis. It was well worth the stop. You are able to go inside and sometimes there are tours. The architecture is wonderful.
