This is a MUST SEE during your SF travels, come to take in the beauty inside and out. Walk the labyrinth (circular, meditative food path) outside before entering, and walk an additional one inside. Check out the beautiful stained glass (sunny evenings are gorgeous) and...More

A must visit. Words can not express the beauty, calmness, peacefulness of this cathedral. Upon entering, you feel a true connection.

The Notre Dame of the US. This Episcopal Church is a must! French Gothic style. The stained windows are splendid. Worth the walk to Nob Hill...

We visited here as part of a tour. Majestic, divine, soaring buttresses, intricate stained glass murals are a few words that come to mind. The Gothic architecture is impressive and unique for this part of the U.S. Glad we visited.

This cathedral is beautiful...but I think my favorite part had to be the labyrinth. I like the idea of downloading an app for a self-guided tour. Unfortunately our phones were out of battery by the time we got here.

We visited twice, both independently and as part of a Hitchcock tour. The cathedral is a prominent landmark, beautifully decorated and with an interesting history. An easy stop along the cable car route, it's worth the visit.

We went on our last day in San Francisco, had the morning before our flight left. Time well spent. I would choose to see the Cathedral any time of the Painted Ladies.

Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the
city and is home to amazing architecture and views.
The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for
those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be
rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful
architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated
with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all
were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that
