Trinity Church is reflected in the beautiful and iconic John Hancock Tower designed by architect Henry Cobb. The juxtaposition of the historic church and shopping area surrounding it in the middle of bustling Boston is remarkable

I enjoyed taking some time to kneel, pray and be with God in this stunning church. The volunteers who greeted were very friendly and informative. The church's images and icons are a lovely to reflect in the rustic pews.

One of the most amazing churches I have seen in the states. The architecture is stunning. It’s across the street from the Boston Public Library and The Old South Church - easy to visit all three in a short time.

We visited Trinity Church because it was listed as one of the top 10 things to do in our DK guide to Boston. It's an interesting building from the outside, not least because of the juxtaposition with the gleaming John Hancock Tower next door; but...More
