Trip Planner:   USA  /  Massachusetts  /  Boston  /  Trinity Church
Erected in the 19th century, Trinity Church remains one of Boston's most famous places of worship. The current complex, built between 1872 and 1877, was designed by Henry Hobson Richardson and is considered both the birthplace and archetype of the Richardsonian Romanesque style of architecture. It is characterized by its clay roof, use of rough stone, heavy arches, and large tower. Inside you can find a number of colorful murals that cover over 2,000 sq m (21,5000 sq ft), all of which are works of American artists. Take a guided tour to learn more about the history and architecture of this beloved Boston institution. Tours are offered daily; children 15 and under are free with a paying adult. Trinity Church is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Boston Edition.

Where to stay in Boston

To stay close to where most of Boston's tourist action is, book a room at one of the many hotels located downtown, near the center of the city and state governments, businesses, and shopping. For a more affordable option, consider a budget-friendly boutique hotel or small bed and breakfast in one of the city's diverse residential neighborhoods. If you plan to stay longer and need a real home away from home, explore Boston's short-term rental options, which include private villas, waterfront lofts, and luxury apartments scattered across the city's historical districts.
