After our city tour we continued on a walk so we could visit some of the sites, This is a truly beautiful Church. Loved the wood work and the magnificent stained glass Tiffany windows. It was a little busy with a tour group but that's what happens when a beautiful Church is on the tourist route!

Beautiful and historic. The windows and organ pipes are fabulous. All around the inside are carved wooden elements and the ceiling is breath-taking. I am sure you will find this a worthwhile visit.

Make sure to check out the graveyard - lot's of SC history there. The ironwork is some of the best in Charleston. All of church street is worth the walk.

The woodwork in this Church is outstanding. As with most of the other historical churches in the city, this free attraction is worth seeing. BeG sure to stop by and see pew #43 ... George Washington worshipped there on 8 May 1791. General Robert E. Lee worshipped there 70 years later. Be sure to walk through the cemetary ... many... More

Walked through this church when we stopped here on a cruise. The Tiffany stained glass widows were breathtaking.

I was really taken with this church. It reminded me of the small, old churches in Europe. The altar to St. Michael is breathtaking. I'm glad we visited and would encourage all to visit if only to take a peek

Beautiful woodworking and stained glass. This attraction is free and worth seeing. The building is impressive, the pews are interesting, the stained glass is beautiful and there is a cemetary next door.

Went here to see the grave site of a signor of the US Constitution. Graveyard is worthwhile, but the church is also recommended. Grab the little brochure which tells of the history.

Since this was my wife's first ever trip to the southeast, and Charleston, I researched places to worship prior to selecting to attend St. Michael's. The key factors in the decision were the fact that this is not just a relic of a place, but a very alive church and that continues a tradition which is reaching out to the... More
