Minneapolis/St. Paul Attractions
of Saint Paul
The Cathedral of Saint Paul is a landmark, the Mother Church of the
Archdiocese and a vibrant parish that serves as the soul of the Upper
Midwest, calling us to live as children of God with the mission of
building a civilization of love. The Cathedral reminds us of the
sacrifices made by the immigrants who settled the area and how
Minnesota's capital city got its name. It is a spiritual home for all,
open seven days a week, almost 12 hours a day.
Saint Paul, Minnesota, has a stretch of street that holds discoveries
for visitors and residents alike. Rich in local character and tree-lined
charm, Grand Avenue invites you to meander down its sidewalks and take
in the historic and the hip, the small-town and the urbane, the engaging
contradictions that are Grand Avenue.
Discover an 1820s military outpost once the focus of a small
settlement but now at the center of Minnesota's Twin Cities metropolitan
area. This restored stone fortress opens its gates to welcome you to
frontier life. Imagine that the year is 1827, and as costumed guides
greet you, that you've just arrived via steamboat up the Mississippi

sandstone residence was the setting of the public and private lives of
