Stunning church inside and out. A must see. The detail of everything is absolutely incredible. Copley Square is amazing, Public Library right across the street is a must see as well.

Charging to enter any place of worship is so wrong in so many levels, everyone turned around and walked out. Its beautiful from the outside but once you seen the Vatican,hard to even hold a candle to anything else ☺️..... Oh and that is free entry.

I really do recommend to visit this old church during your stay in Boston. It's easy to get there e.g. using the service of Old Town Trolley Tours.

I visited on a summer Sunday for a Sunday service. The summer choir, which numbered about 24, sounded great, and the building was splendid. Not to be missed.

This tinny old church is located next to a modern and tall skyscraper. The mix of styles is very interesting. In my opinion it's one of the highlights of the district. It is worth a visit.

I attended church service at Trinity Church on Sunday, July 6, 2014. The service itself was one of the most beautiful I have ever attended anywhere. The regular church choir was excellent. There was also a visiting choir from Oxford. The architecture was very interesting with beautiful details to look at everywhere. The antiphonal organ was absolutely beautiful completely surrounded...

Ok, you need to pay 7 dollars each to get in but it is worth it. Amazing coloured glass and you can enjoy the serenity while walking through the church.

We took a guides tour which was offered at 11,1 & 2 on the day we visited. I do believe guided tours are not offered on Mondays. Our tour guide was Marcia who was very knowledgeable and was interactive with the group. The cost of a ticket is $7. There is a discount for students and no charge for those... More

Finest stained glass in the nation, But what moved me most was the attitude of love. Every quote around the altar is about love and inclusiveness. Like the cathedrals and basilicas of Europe but transcendent. This place is not about human self-loathing. It's about divine grace and unconditional love.
