Loved this church. Beautiful pipe organ. The windows are art. The ceiling is also very beautiful and inspiring. There is a sweet little garden on the side with a fountain.

If you are visiting Richmond, don't miss a visit to St. Paul's. This was Robert E. Lee's home church. It has a fantastic organ and beautiful stained glass windows.

My sisters and I stopped by St Paul's church right after touring the Richmond Capitol. Wow! The stained glass windows are simple gorgeous! It was fun finding the places (pews) where famous people from history sat.

A historic structure right in the heart of the city only steps from the Virginia Capitol grounds, St. Paul's is a nice way to spend some time meditating on it's history and beautiful Tiffany stained glass windows. Worth the time, and could be done in conjunction with the Capitol tour.
