2. Wonder at the beauty of the Cathedral of Saint Paul
Sitting high on a hill overlooking the sprawling downtown districts of Saint Paul is where visitors will find this gorgeous church.
The fourth-tallest of its kind in the country, the building is topped with a distinctive copper dome and spire, was raised in the early years of the 1900s and is now designated as the official shrine to Paul the Apostle in the United States (a fact verified by the Vatican).
The architectural makeup of the cathedral is a wonder on its own. The façade combines elements of the Gothic, the Baroque and Beaux-Arts, while the interior boasts one beautiful bronze baldachin and several chapels dedicated to the patron saints of the city’s various immigrant communities, from the Irish to the Italians.
