A very knowledgable and friendly guide took us back in history through stories of politics, craftsmanship, and architectural influences to learn about the building and evolution of this beautiful landmark with its different styles of stainglass windows.

The stained glass windows transformed as the afternoon sun moved across the sky. I would not recommend this as a rainy day activity because a cloudy sky would leave the the darkly colored interior too subdued. I found the character of the wood moldings far more impressive when illuminated by natural light. The pictures and drawings provided by the guide... More

This church is worth the small price of admission for the murals and stained glass alone. They do have some tours at no additional charge (I think), that we missed (but heard the tail end of) that would have been nice to be on. Make sure to read the pamphlet on the history of the church and to view the... More

Located on Copley Square, this Episcopal Church is awesome to behold. The building is of granite and one cannot help but to admire the intricate craftsmanship used in the building of this church. It is easy to imagine the men and women who spent their Sundays worshipping here in the 1800's. We would have loved to view the interior but... More

Enjoyed walking the park this church is in. Also found very interesting the reflection of the historic church in the glass office building next to it!

While the exterior is truly impressive, the interior is disappointing - and expensive to visit. Skip the paid entrance and just admire the exterior

A must-see for architecture buffs. Guided tour helped us to learn more about the building of the church, and of downtown Boston (reasonable cost).

You cannot expect the Trinity Church to be as grand and magnificent as the most famous churches in Europe but it doesn't mean that it is not worth a visit. Quite the contrary and I really like the contrast it gives me. I went there on a Sunday afternoon when there was no service and I enjoyed the tranquility there.... More

Trinity Church (US$7 per person) is a Episcopal church and national landmark that makes for a very interesting place to see at Copley Square. Opening Hours for touring are 9-4.45pm (Monday - Saturday) and 11.15-5.45pm (Sundays). Founded in 1733, what makes Trinity Church most impressive is the unique, Richardson Romanesque architectural style, which first made its mark with the construction... More
