This church is so beautiful and well worth a visit. The fact that the architect who designed the Hancock Building (next to it) decided to design his building of reflective glass so it would not complete but mirror Trinity Church tells you of its beauty. Inside is equally as wonderful.

The architecture of this church is unbelievable. I took many pictures of the various intricate designs. Even without going inside, it is worth a visit.

Visited the Trinity Church in the City of Boston, located in the Back Bay of Boston, Massachusetts, in Copeley Square. The Church has a tranquil ambience with a pleasant décor. The statues of hare and tortoise located outside of the Church in the adjoining square area near the statue of Mr. Copeley depicted the famous Aesop's fable / story.

This church is amazingly beautiful inside and out. The inside is stunning with its woodwork, paintings, and stained glass windows. There is a free 30 minutes tour you can go on and find out more about the history and architecture of the church. I think it is a must see if you are in Copley Sqaure.

I find the place boring and unworthy of its fame. From what I understand, it is special because it is the first american style church or something like that. But I really don't see anything special compared to other (more grand) churches

On our recent trip to Boston, we visited Trinity Church and took the short guided tour (which is free). This jewel turned out to be our biggest surprise...worth every minute we spent there. The stained glass artwork was outstanding. You will also learn that this building is one of the important architectural structures in US history. It's hard to rank... More

We had seen this church from the Sky Observatory. It looked beautiful from above and I felt even more lucky to come across it during a walk. The church was closed when we arrived, but it didnt matter. Just the outside was stunning amongst the glass skyscaper to its right. Stroll by. Worth it.

Lovely church. Completely different from what we get in Spain. Though the entry fee is a little expensive for a church ($7), it's worth it if you're not used to this kind of architecture.

Staying in Back Bay

Neighborhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
