It is a beautiful church plus it offers service/mass in the afternoon during weekdays Mass was short to my opinion. Not sure if the church remains open in between masses

Saint Patrick Catholic Church was rebuilt following the earthquake and fire of 1906. At one point it was called the “the most Irish Catholic church in America.” They’re good views of the exterior from across the street at Yerba Buena Park. The juxtaposition with the...More

Saint Patrick's church is a beautiful and historical church surrounded by modern buildings in downtown San Francisco. The church is impressive to look at both from the outside and from the inside. My visit coincided with a service that was just getting started, but it...More

The old church was preserved in the middle of a huge renewal area that has finally filled in with modern hotels and the huge convention center. It looks lonely all by itself.

Working church with regular mass. Beautiful but not spectacular. It’s always good to stop in churches, mosques and temples when traveling. Easy stop in before after the nearby museums.

One of the older churches in San Francisco and a survivor from the era when poor people lived in this area. Now it is crowded with world-class museums and the convention center and all that goes with it. A simple church.

A nice old church for a quick visit. Now, this isn’t much compared to some of the old churches in Europe, but it is pretty nice for what we have in the US. Pretty architecture. Free. Clean. Quiet. Only takes about 5-10 minutes to visit....More

This church, combined with the Yerba Buena gardens just across the street, provide a small piece of tranquility in a very bustling city. The church is beautiful and we enjoyed sitting in a pew taking it all in. Some great photos of this church can...More

South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated
vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs
and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to
find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter
for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able
to do more than just business - museums, top quality
restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call
this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized
