Do you see the wee figures in front of the massive doors?
Today, we took a field trip to the Cathedral of St Paul, in St Paul, Minnesota. It is good that the Catholics created an archdiocese along the banks of the Mississippi, otherwise, the capitol of Minnesota might still be Pig's Eye, Minnesota.
We had a fabulous tour guide. A feisty elderly lady who used to be a university professor and now is the archivist at the Cathedral. She asked that we share with anyone we tell about our tour one fact about the Cathedral. The Cathedral is open all day everyday.
We saw many gorgeous statues, gorgeous marble, and other works of beauty.
We saw a cast replica of Michelangelo's famous pieta. The girls were particularly thrilled to see it.
Of course there were lots of gorgeous stained glass windows
You can see the Minnesota State Capitol in the photo above. We were going to visit the capitol building too but we didn't have time. So it will be saved for another day.
