Trinity Church, Boston

(4.4/5 based on 700 reviews on the web)
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.

  • This reminds one a little bit of why Boston feels like Europe. Stunning interiors and worth the stop.  more »
  • If you've an interest in architecture, especially architectural history, then a visit to Copley Square and Trinity Church is a must when you're in Boston. Designed by H.H. Richardson it is spectacular...  more »
  • The classic form of the Church. Names associated with deep Christian Trinity. Copley Square looks if the ray intersects the Church I used to do a lot of live weekend are coming to worship deurireo. The Church is the organ concerts at 12:00 on Friday, and the line, receives a donation, depending on the level of satisfaction after the show.

  • 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.
  • Beautiful church, very interesting architecture and artwork. Well worth the guided tour.
  • It's not free to enter it. I felt peacefully when i saw it.
  • This place charges an extremely exorbitant entrance fee for what you get to see. The church is beautiful, the architecture, the windows, and the interior. But everything other than the pews is roped off. You can't get close to the very cool looking altar, can't go upstairs, and can't get anywhere that isn't on the main floor in the pews. I was pretty bummed I had to fork out $14 for me and wife to just wander around the benches. Our hotel front desk said the tours take you up and around, if this is true I highly suggest taking a tour instead of just going in and looking yourself.
