A Lovely, and Iconic Cathedral In August, while staying on Nob Hill, I took the opportunity to explore Grace Cathedral, a block and a half from our hotel. I had admired the structure from afar, on many occasions, but had never actually visited, so on this lovely Summer day, I changed that, and am glad that I did. I first admired the architecture from Huntington Park, just across Taylor St, from Grace Cathedral, and a vantage point, that gave me a great view of the imposing structure. Then, I crossed over California St, to see it from an angle - just as imposing. Finally, I took the time to explore it some, from both inside, and out. What a magnificent cathedral. This structure was built after the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, but in a style, that goes back a century, to French Gothic, and aspects of several cathedrals in France, can be seen, including buildings in Paris, and Chartres. Much of the French Gothic carries over to the interiors, as well. While lovely, the interiors were a bit austere, based on the ornate exterior facade - lovely, but just not as imposing. The Boys’ School, is attached, across a wide courtyard, but I did not explore its interior. The one regret is that I did not take a guided tour of Grace Cathedral, but hope to, on another visit, later in the year. If one did do such a tour, I would allocate at least three hours (I spent two, looking at the exterior and the interiors sections open).
