Trinity Church, a magnificent Episcopal church with exquisite stained glass windows was built in Back Bay in the 1870s. Back bay was swampland, and they had to drive thousands of pilings in the marsh as a base for it. We were awed by the art and architecture of this beautiful church. Don't miss it.

This building has been selected as one of the 10 most important buildings in the United States by the American Institute of Architects and for good reason. Take the tour, it was only 7 dollars and well worth it. The guide gives a lot of history of Boston along with the history of the church and the architectural details. Don't... More

Every year at Christmas time we go line up outside and hope to get a spot inside to listen to the choir. Beautiful building, wonderful location, great tradition. We line up because so many people want to get inside too. Some years we have been turned away, other years we've stood in the back, and on those special years we... More

This church is gorgeous and huge, it's so unexpected when you come upon it in the middle of a busy shopping district. I wish it had been open so I could see the inside!

This is a stunning church! I love the stained glass windows, they have such historical significance and great artists. I loved the old world architecture. The Church really doesn't seem out of place with all the new buildings surrounding it I will definitely go back and spend more time exploring it.

What a lovely building right in the centre of Boston. All the new glossy buildings wrapped around it and this the most beautiful of all. Inside you can sense the history and the church does organise tours as well

Copley Square is one of the loveliest parts of Boston and contains 2 architectural gems, Trinity Church and the Boston Public Library. On this trip, we only had time for the former. It is magnificent inside and out, and has been described as one of the 10 most noteworthy pieces of architecture in the U.S. Inside, it is just gorgeous,... More

I went to their regular Sunday evening service during this month. I've been to their Christmas mass two years ago and enjoyed very much so attended this time when I am around Boston. Still was very good and unique. But I must admit that one of their staffs was clearly not happy with the presence of first-time-visitors. Even though I... More

I was shocked and horrified upon my recent visit to Trinity Church Boston to enter only to find two docents who were directing folks downstairs to pay to enter. I wanted to worship for a moment, and pray......I was told I could still do this for free, but was made to feel guilty.......I have been going in this place of... More

This is one of the most beautiful churches in the US, we have been in Boston for two consecutive Christmas seasons and it proves to be a very special place. My wife an I are of different religions and the services are welcoming and worth experiencing, the beauty of the sanctuary makes it worth visit without a service. Take in... More
