This was a stop along the Freedom Trail and we took a moment to view it from the outside and read a little bit about the building's history. We did not pay to enter the church for a tour. There are some sites along the...More

We saw the sign advertising a jazz worship service that they do every Thursday evening from 6pm to 7pm. We thought that would be a wonderful way to unwind and reflect after a busy day of sightseeing in Boston, and before going out to dinner....More

Another historical church right on Boylston St. Across the street from the historic Public Library. We did not enter. We just got pictures from the outside. This was used for a meeting place in colonial time. Close to another historic church: Trinity. This would be...More

Beautiful area in Boston that is home to an awesome church. This is the church where they filmed Boondock Saints so we checked it out and were not disappointed.

Beautiful old church with an amazing building exterior. Looks stunning from any angle. The inside isn't quite as pretty as the exterior but still a lovely holy place.

This very beautiful church on the freedom tail has very nice stained glass windows and is a great tour back to the late 19th century.

The Old South Church is another historic marvel in Boston. You'll find a lot of tourists in this area and its a nice place to explore if you like churches etc.

Beautiful old church in Boston. Lovely stained glass and some nice history too. Right in the hub of Boylston Street.

A pleasantly quiet retreat from the busy surrounding Copely Plaza. Stained glass windows are beautiful. You can come and sit and pray or meditate. Donations accepted but not required.

While we did stop in, this isn't as interesting as the Old North Church. If we hadn't had the Go Boston Card, I doubt we would have paid to go in.
