What a beautiful cathedral - reminds me of the old churches in England. You can park across the street and walk around inside. Also, it is right down the street from the Hill house and other mansions. Well worth a visit!

My sister and I are history buffs so when she visited from Virginia I had to make a quick stop to the Cathedral. It is a must see because the architecture is absolutely beautiful

A beautiful spot to sit and appreciate the peace and beauty within a magnificent building. It was awe inspiring and helped to remind us how glorious our world can be.

Like a mini- trip to Rome including the hills. Go inside; view the works of art; light a candle in remembrance; take in a mass or prayer, even if you're not Catholic. Make sure to walk outside behind the main sanctuary and look up. Gorgeous...More

The Cathedral of St Paul is quite simply the Heart of the Catholic Church in the Twin Cities. It is also the National Shrine of the Apostle Paul as designated by the Vatican. If you really want a moving and impressive Catholic experience I suggest...More

Sorry Bill, Can't accurately answer but reckon if you contact the Archdiocese Office (Google it) they would be able to assist or advise you. Failing that contact the Local tourist office ? Just make sure you don't miss it... More
