Religious Site Architectural Building
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. Put Trinity Church and other Boston attractions into our Boston family vacation planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Disappointing to my husband, that the church is under construction. But what are you gonna do when your church is thinking you definitely got a fix-it. I have been there before in 2014 went on a trip ...  more »

  • I have been to the church during Sunday service. Its an amazing experience and they have awesome choirs, organs and trumpets take you to the heavenly music experience. Trumpets take you out of the earth...
  • Stunning architecture!! I saw a concert of very professional singers doing choral arrangements that was phenomenal. Seems like a spiritually dead place however...
  • An architectural masterpiece. Interesting history and good location in the city.
  • Great church 7$ dollars to enter not a bad price if you enjoy architecture and stain glass but if you are there to say a prayer it is FREE of charge just got to let the workers know
  • Atten: This church charges money to enter during non mass hours. This is a beautiful church we frequent Everytime we come to the downtown area of Copley. We live in Quincy. I always felt a great presence when in this church. Just recently our adult children whom live out of state came for a visit. When we brought them Trinity to show them the beautiful interior and a quick prayer. They now charge $7.00 person to do that. That's steep money just for Five people to go in and say a prayer and respect the Lord for 5 or 10 mins. Asking for a Donation would be more proper. Sorry you lost our visit for a quick prayer and admiration.
