This Byzantine-style chapel alone is worth a trip to Lakewood Cemetery. Built in 1908/09, it has brilliant interior mosaics that were artisan-created in Italy from Venetian glass. Art Nouveau windows and floor lamps, copper doors and marble floors add warmth and richness to the glittering rainbow of color from 10 million tiny tessalle of glass that cover the walls and dome. The chapel and administration building provide free pamphlets, with beautiful photography, which explain the symbolism behind the patterns, angels and other figures illustrated in the mosaics.
The chapel is usually open during regular Lakewood Cemetery hours but as it's used for funeral services, you may want to call ahead for that day's visiting schedule. Combine this with a walk in the cemetery (see previous tip) for a nice little bit of solitude.
Address: 3600 Hennepin Ave, Minneapolis
