  • Had never been here before, even though I've been to the Cathedral a dozen times. Can't believe I never ventured here, glad the museum was closed (don't get me started on that place!) I just love the ...  more »

  • Possibly the most beautiful place in Oakland. Feels bigger on the inside. A nice place to find a bit of quiet and respite in an otherwise loud and busy part of town. As others have mentioned, getting to hear the organ is a treat - but it's nice to sit and listen to the space breathe, too. Stained glass (featuring both religious and secular images) is spectacular. Love the kaleidescope effect it plays on the stone on sunny days. If you have a chance, come to a Sunday night compline service here. It's practically otherworldly.
  • my son's getting married on April 7th can't wait
  • If you want a cool experience, ask the docent to hear the organ. They have a special program that will play the organ even if there isn't an organist. Definitely something you must do if you visit the chapel.
  • Absolutely gorgeous architecture. The docent was very pleasant and helpful. Great place for photographers novice to professional to hone their skills or develop a new one.
  • Beautiful Gothic cathedral. Great accustics
