i am a church guy. if it's old, broken, got a steeple or a defensive wall, i'll go see it. this basilica is nice, but nothing special
The Basilica is not just another giant cathedral, largely abandoned for spiritual purposes - like the St. Paul Cathedral. The Basilica remains in contact with the community, providing the focus for a big block party and providing meeting spaces for various services for the community.
If you are a visitor to the Twin Cities or otherwise, don't generally visit this area of downtown Mpls, the Basilica is a must see. It will take your breath away. The mass is even more amazing -- sound and immensity.
I had the opportunity to tour the Basilica of St. Mary with a work group. Was blown away about the history and details our tour guide provided us. A beautiful building that should be appreciated more. Looking forward to my next trip to spend more time looking at the beautiful art work housed there.
