  • Beautiful place, enter with respect, after all it's a temple of faith and prayer. There is no objection for taking pictures inside, just be aware in case of a service or event happening (mass, funerals, weddings, etc). The art is everywhere around you, I was in awe. Highly recommend it, feel free to go inside with your family. All are invited. It is a Roman Catholic minor basilica, the first one in the USA. An important landmark that you can not miss.
  • Even though I'm Protestant, I always make sure to celebrate Midnight Mass at a Catholic parish, cathedral, or basilica. This year I was in Minneapolis for Christmas, so my family went to the Basilica of St. Mary. Absolutely stunning. I've been to beautiful places in Knoxville, San Antonio, Galveston, Savannah, etc. This was my favorite on this side of the pond. Next time I'm in Minneapolis I'll be going again.
