Open free to the public from 8-5:00. Not extravagant, but very nice with some excellent stained glass. Built 1869-1886 it sits on ground that dates back to a church built on the site in 1626. Easy two-block walk from the Satan Fe tourist district, and...More

This church has the most unusual baptismal font that I've ever seen: it's more like a baptismal wading pool in the center of the church. There is also an amazing display of reliquaries (e.g., three one centimeter pieces of Mother Theresa's hair).

The stair case alone is amazing, even if you don't think you'd want to visit a church. It's a really neat place to visit.

Wonderful history, there was a very nice gentleman that walked us through the history of the entire building from when the gorgeous stained glass windows were put in to where the relics, which happen to be on display, came from.

We visited this church on a Sunday and enjoyed the service. There's a plaque at the back that commemorates Igor Stravinsky performing there several times! The church has a lot of history and is worth a look.

We parked at the municipal garage on San Francisco and headed toward the square. We decide to first walk that side of the street all the way down to the church. Highly recommended if you like churches and their history.
