The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the city and is home to amazing architecture and views. The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all were devastated in the 1906 earthquake and fire that followed. Luckily all is not lost; storied hotels and Grace Cathedral surround Huntington Park. Having a drink or dinner while taking in the sunset and views at the "top of the Mark" is tough to beat.

The Grace Cathedral was opposite my hotel, so I had no excuse not to visit.
The style of architecture seemed reassuringly familiar and reminded me of Gothic cathedrals back home in England.
A beautiful space inside full of calm and peace to escape the hustle and bustle outside. I thoroughly recommend a visit here.

Well maintained facility. Worth s visit but they charge for a self guided tour and of course parking.

If in the area its OK but not really a must see.

San Francisco has more attractive things to do.

This is a fantastic cathedral, both architecturally, but most importantly - thanks to its tolerant nature towards other religions and acceptance of the LGBT community.

Magical experience not to be missed; Tuesday night Yoga on the Labyrinth! Beautiful atmosphere with marble floored labyrinth, colorful intricate stained glass casting vivid colors, live melodic and meditative music, words to touch your heart, yoga class with verbal instruction, and filled with kindness and grace of the hosts and community.
Note: Grace Parking Garage is $$$$. For the fit, recommend parking at the clean and more reasonably priced Sutter & Stockton Garage and walking the 5 Blocks.

This magnificent cathedral tops Nob Hill. The scale and the style are grand. Services here are very special and the clergy really serve the community. A great resource.

Die Eintrittskosten von wenigen Dollars lohnen sich sehr. Mit zwei Broschüren wird die Architektur und die Ausstellung bestens beschrieben. Ein Highlight!
The entrance fee of a few dollars is well worth it. With two brochures, the architecture and the exhibition are described in the best possible way. A highlight!

We tour churches in Europe, so why not in the US? We took a ride share to Nob Hill and made it just in time for our 2:00 tour ($18 seniors). The docent explained the history of the church building, the replica front doors, the labyrinth, Keith Haring altar, history murals, Jacob’s Dream art installation, stained glass windows, and more. There are digital stations that give information about significant items if you can’t schedule a tour. Lots of history, architecture, and art to enjoy. Well worth a stop if you are in the area.
