This is a truly beautiful church. Across from Paul Revere statue which is what people are seeing in the area. Don’t miss out seeing this church.

Nice church right on Hanover St. in the North End. Little bit of history going back to colonial time. I would not make a single trip to see the place, but add it to your visits of Old North Church, Paul Revere House and the...More

This Roman Catholic Church is the only one built by the famous architect Bulfinch that still remains intact. It is historical as it was built just after the revolution in 1804. Originally it was a Unitarian church but it became catholic in 1862 when the...More

This church is worth the stop if nothing else to enjoy the tranquil grounds and a view of early 1700's architecture. I was here early in the morning and it was very peaceful, not a lot of people, and the clear, cool air made it...More

Just off the Freedom Trail, the architecture here isn't elaborate but it does continue the story of the faithful in Boston. As a Catholic, I appreciated seeing the inside of this lovely church during our Freedom Trail walk.

Does not look like a Catholic church and originally, it wasn't. No stained glass windows, but a few statues. The outside red brick is somewhat pretty. Overall, not worth a separate trip, but if you are in the North End, walking down Hanover street, take...More

First it is an active Catholic Church so me take off your hats! Neat Bullfinch church very plainly decorated but a nice haven after bustling around Hanover street all morning. Stop by for a visit and relax a bit.

While this simple church, steps from the Old North Church, isn't the attraction of its neighbor, it was interesting to stumble upon, and has a historic legacy of its own. Two things intrigued me enough to enter: a plaque commemorating the execution of Goodwife Ann...More

We walked in the North End and ended up running into that nice red bricks church. The outside is very pretty but the inside very simple. Nothing very intriguing in there then it's a cute quaint and quiet church.

This is now a Roman Catholic church but was not always so. The church, designed by Charles Bulfinch, was built in 1804. It was later restored in 1964. Rose Kennedy, mother of JFK, was baptized here in 1890. Her funeral was held here in 1995....More

North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like
being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and
Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants,
bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part
in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or
Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma
sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s
home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church
