A story of Pheonix type reconstruction honoris causa- a palimpsest of an edifice crowning Nob Hill post the 1906 disaster. An english mimesis n English Gothic style by George Frederick Bodley in London, who died in 1907, with Lewis P. Hobart of San Francisco completing. An athletic event almost taking many years to be completed. A3.9 million in 2023) to complete the full cathedral.In european architectural terms this granite sequoia building does not say much but how it evolved as a post traumatic therapeutic event it is a major feat.

We went for an organ recital. Informal and intimate all in the knave. Worth a stroll around as the stained glass holds some surprises. Lots going on there. I would suggest keeping tabs on the events if visiting or living there.

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 very nice Cathedral is located downtown, very close to the historical Fairmont Hotel and overlooking a small nice garden.

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!
