Cathedrals and Churches
Scale Replica of Michelangelo's "La Pietá" - Saint Paul Cathedral
The Twin Cities are truly blessed with several classical-style churches and cathedrals. This tour takes you inside to appreciate the grandeur of sacred space, sculpture, stained glass, and architecture. The tour includes the Cathedral of Saint Paul and the Basilica of St. Mary, considered two of North America's most beautiful, among others.
The tour duration varies by the number of churches visited. Figure one hour per church. Tours are a minimum 3.5 hours, although it could take all day if you wish, as there are several of interest.
Your guide will be TCT founder Douglas Rosenquist, now semi-retired, but for this, his favorite tour.
