Beautiful old church located near Washington Square. Interior architecture is absolutely breathtaking. Worth a visit if you're in the area.

Whilst walking around the North Beach (Little Italy) area we came across Saints Peter and Paul Church a Roman Catholic Church directly across from Washington Square. This 1924 Italian Gothic styled cathedral with twin spires is where Joe DiMaggio and Marilyn Monroe took wedding photos....More
Popped in here on the way to Coits Tower. Very well kept church with nice stained glass etc. Very peaceful inside. Avery nice 'working' church.
Lovely church in a great location! Walk in say a prayer and light a candle. Locat4d in North Beach - which is a treasure trove of cafes and bars
Beautiful huge, old church right across from Washington Square Park in North Beach. Lovely stained glass windows. Very peaceful inside with old fashioned confessionals and real candles for tributes. You are free to walk around inside & enjoy the spirituality there.
Little Italy area must see Church. Interior and outside lawn are great places to visit. Enjoy sense of relaxing and European feelings overall.
Only able to look at the exterior of this wonderful Church as a Wedding was about to start.It is a glorious building and in a lovely part of San Francisco.
Worth a visit if you're in Little Italy, purely because of the oddity of its address. I found out that Joe Dimaggio and Marilyn Monroe had their wedding photos taken on the steps of this church (although they didn't get married there).
This is how early San Franciscans lived. They built glorious edifices and honored God. They loved beauty. They donated out of their working class household budgets. See what penny campaigns can do. The art, mosaics, spires, photo ops, Mass, organ playing is all exceptional.
