Minneapolis Things to Do: 292 reviews and 540 photos
Vist to a very impressive Catholic Basilica. The imposing size of the church and it very attractive Beaux Arts style merits a visit. Construction was begun in 1907 but it was not until 1922 that all interior and exterior work had been completed. The Basilica is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Upon arriving at the Basilica you will immediately see the the impressive square copper clad dome that rises 280 ft above ground level with a stainless steel cross some 13 ft taller on top of the dome. The exterior of the church is clad in white Vermont granite. The interior has marble statues and stained glass that is worthy of a visit.
