The cemetery was more interesting than the church I think. Many important and famous people there. The churches history was interesting to learn too. I would recommend visiting here when you're in the heart of downtown Boston!

This is an active congregation so some of the access is limited, but it is a beautiful building with an interesting history and worth a quick walk through.

The birthplace of the Richardsonian Romanesque architectural style, which quickly spread throughout the country (especially in train stations and courthouses). An absolutely stunning building inside and out, with sublime murals and stained-glass windows. Take the one-hour guided tour (usually around noon--call the gift shop for info), which provides excellent context and access to the chancel and other off-limits areas.

Being fans of history and old architecture, my wife and I decided to see this building and we weren't disappointed. It's spectacular and honestly has to be seen to be appreciated. The windows are amazing and also check out the wooden carvings on the pulpit

Amazing design, a must see to appreciate all the work done and in the midst of modernization. Great location, so much around to do, near a small Farmers Market.

I took a lot of photos of this church. It is one of the oldest places I have seen in the States, and I fell in love with the architecture. We didn't have time to go inside, but the exterior is worth stopping for a few minutes and snapping some photos.

The church is really ornate and makes for some great photos. We didn't go inside and I understand there is a fee to go in. Outside is still really nice and its a cool contrast with the Hancock building right behind it. Right off of Bolyston St

Beautiful church, free of charge visit but not long working hours and closed for holidays. I missed it few times and finally got a chance to get in, impressive! Has nice garden in the backyard.

We went to one of the Sunday services. If you do, you can take the tour right after the service for free. The church is beautiful. It has many of the original pews, floors, and extensive, complex woodwork. The stained glass windows are a history tour in themselves of styles and artists of the period. Their gift shop in the...

In addition to touring the church, we attended the 10:00 a.m. summer service. The architecture, stained glass and amazing pipe organ contributed to making the experience a very special one that we will not soon forget.
