Beautiful old church with an amazing building exterior. Looks stunning from any angle. The inside isn't quite as pretty as the exterior but still a lovely holy place.

This very beautiful church on the freedom tail has very nice stained glass windows and is a great tour back to the late 19th century.

The Old South Church is another historic marvel in Boston. You'll find a lot of tourists in this area and its a nice place to explore if you like churches etc.

Beautiful old church in Boston. Lovely stained glass and some nice history too. Right in the hub of Boylston Street.

A pleasantly quiet retreat from the busy surrounding Copely Plaza. Stained glass windows are beautiful. You can come and sit and pray or meditate. Donations accepted but not required.

While we did stop in, this isn't as interesting as the Old North Church. If we hadn't had the Go Boston Card, I doubt we would have paid to go in.

This church is close to the the finish line of the Boston Marathon. The Sunday morning "Blessing of the Athletes" services are inspiring! This is a Christian denominational church, but truly, it is a place where everyone is welcome. The atmosphere is warm and friendly....More

I decided to attend the first Palm Sunday service at 9:00 this morning. This service took place in the chapel, so there were chairs instead of pews. I guess they were saving the traditional Palm Sunday gospel for the 11:00 service in the main sanctuary,...More
