The Basilica of Saint Mary is an imposing church in downtown Minneapolis, and the oldest Catholic parish in the city. It was built about a hundred years ago, and it is known to be an exquisite example of Beaux-Arts architecture, one of the best in the States, in fact. The basilica has undergone some repairs, but the historic feel of it hasn't been damaged in the least.

You can visit the church whenever you want, as long as there are no masses being conducted, and you can even get some self-guiding brochures at the entrance. Fun fact: the church's nave is one of the widest in the world.

Address:
88 17th St N, Minneapolis, MN 55403, USA

Price:
Free
