The First Basilica In The United States Is Right Here In Minnesota And It’s Gorgeous
In Minneapolis, right next to the 94/394 interchange, you might find yourself face to face with a massive church. In the Loring Park neighborhood, across from the Walker Art Center, The Basilica of Saint Mary stands resolute against the skyline. Most Twin Cities residents are used to seeing its gargantuan silhouette as they drive by, but many don’t stop to appreciate the amazing detail and history behind it.
