Trip Planner: USA / California / San Francisco / Grace Cathedral
See a church famous for its mosaics, labyrinths, stained-glass windows, and both medieval and contemporary furnishings when you visit Grace Cathedral. As you approach the towering cathedral, be sure to walk the first labyrinth before making your way to the doors. Before you enter, note that the doors are a famed replica of Ghiberti’s Gates of Paradise. Once inside, you can walk the second labyrinth, or wander through the cathedral to admire the murals by De Rosen and the 66 stained-glass windows created by a variety of artists. If you time it right, you may be able to hear the 44-bell carillon, three organs, or one of the men's and boys' choirs. Stop by the shop for prayer books, music, and gifts, or grab a drink from the downstairs coffee shop. To take a tour, it's best to sign up in advance. Printed visitor guides are available in several languages. Put Grace Cathedral on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our San Francisco road trip planner.

This very nice Cathedral is located downtown, very close to the historical Fairmont Hotel and overlooking a small nice garden.

If I could I would if given it 4.75 stars because of one thing which I’ll mention at the end. Great and well kept building. Just stepping inside makes you gasp of the beauty inside those plain exterior walls. From the stairs to the smallest details on the door portraits it’s all amazing. It’s filled with too many pieces of architectural wonder to describe you simply have to see it. It’s a long walk up and down so it might be easier on the knees to get a ride. Lastly the only reason I would give it a 4.75 review is because it seems like you have to pay even to step inside.
Beautiful church in Nob hill. We were lucky last Sunday to see a live performance there. Surrounding area is safe and clean. Very good view of San Francisco from there. That area is not good for biking although.
