  • The Cathedral of the Roman Katalicheskoj Church is located in the city centre, on the corner of Grant Avenue and California Street, and is one of the oldest buildings in the city. The Cathedral is beautiful, there are many frescos on the walls depicted Biblical stories. On Sunday concerts. Chant chorus wonderful.

  • Old St.Mary Church 位於唐人街旁,是一座古老而漂亮的天主教堂,聖堂內氣氛莊嚴神聖,外部的紅磚牆、內部的聖像壁畫都很美,身處其中,內心也感到十分寬慰。 若是天主教教友,不要錯過前來這裏朝聖,就算不是教徒,也可以來這裏參觀一下這座特色建築。

  • I LOVE THE OLD ST. MARYS CATHEDRAL. IT WAS SO BEAUTIFUL. THE NIGHT WHEN IT WAS ON FIREI CRIED MYSELF TO SLEEP. IT WILL LIVE ON IN MY HEART FOREVER. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
  • Nice shop with my different crosses for your preference. The gift shop saved my bladder (for free) so many times over the years, I couldn't thank them enough. Dunno if it's still true,but I hope it is. There's a reason I always tell people when you have to go to the bathroom, Jesus saves in Chinatown. (please some make that a title of a movie) Beautiful church,family loved to attend when they were in town. I recommend it.
  • We love Old St Mary's every time we visit SFO. The pastor always delivers an inspirational sermon which leaves us with food for thought. And the choir sings beautifully.
  • Lovely building in the middle of Chinatown! I was amazed with its architecture as I was with its history. It's so interesting how buildings can also be witness of what a city has been through. It used to be the tallest building in the city and survived the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, only to be gutted a day later by the fires started by the earthquake. The fires were so hot that they melted the church bells and marble altar! It served as a shelter during the WWII, so it's really amazing what these walls could say if they were able to speak!
  • Very beautiful cathedral with a unique Chinese Holy Family Statue. A lovely spot for quiet meditation.
