Beauty and Peace

Truly beautiful church. A sanctuary of peace in the hustle and bustle of Boston. Remember to look at the reflection in the John Hancock Building - amazing photo opportunity.

This is a very nice looking church, the exterior being slightly more impressive than the interior. It is situated on a very busy common space that is home to small farmer markets, performing street artists, a multitude of tourists and the homeless. It is worth viewing (at least from the outside) but pay the $7 per person for the view... More

This church is in a central location in Boston. The architecture is unique. We walked all around the perimeter to view it from all angles.

Visited the place in 2008. Outside the Church is a happening place. We Visited during the day and only few of us were there inside the Church. It was quite and serene. We sat there are meditated for 30 mins - calm and one of the wonderful experiences i had. The glass paintings are beautiful.

Both the inside and the outside of this church are architecturally stunning. The stained glass is gorgeous, absolutely worth a visit to the Copley Square area.

The title says it all. The Trinity Church is one of the most impressive buildings in Boston from an architectural standpoint. It is currently listed as a top 10 building by the American Institute of Architects and has been since 1885. It has also been a National Historic Landmark for nearly 50 years. Stop by the Copley Square area, take... More

A modest fee of 7 dollars (cheaper for seniors) will get you in plus a tour guide if you time it right. Most impressive building built on reclaimed land. Some wonderful stained glass windows and architecture. It is reckoned to be one of the top 10 sights not to be missed in Boston. There is a small gift shop. Highly... More

I attended Sunday worship in this Episcopal church to commune with God. Afterwards I took a tour lasting 90 minutes, justified for there is much art to contemplate as the design of the sanctuary is full of expression & significance. The stained glass and murals are wonders. The 1st rector, Phillip Brooks, is remembered in a massive statue by Daniel... More

I've been to Boston, that wonderful city, several times and it never fails to enamour me. One of my favorite places, which I mention in my novel, is Trinity Church. Located in Back Bay, with a parish house and church designed by Henry Hobson Richardson in the late 1800s, following the Romanesque style, Trinity Church is one of the most... More

The cost to visit the sanctuary is a $7 donation for adults. It is definitely worth it. We walked in and someone was playing the organ. Chilling! The most beautiful stained glass I have ever seen. Full of spirit and history.
