In the center of the Nob Hill district of San Francisco stands this beautiful old church which began its construction in 1928. Over the decades it took to make this cathedral many different artists and sculptors came to help it along. It was finished in 1968 and stands as a beautiful work of art that is as amazing on the inside as it is on the out.  This gothic style church, constructed in 1964, continues to be one of the most elegant religious buildings in the country.

The front of the Grace Cathedral is similar to that of Notre Dame in Paris. Its interior, which is illuminated by the blue lights projected from the stained glass windows, dazzles you with its simplicity; its tall hollow ceilings with pointed arches give a great sense of open space. The atmosphere in the cathedral is even more special thanks to the organ that has been in operation there since 1934.
