Sacred Places In San Francisco

Neighborhood: Cathedral Hill (Gough/Geary area)


Come and witness the astounding effect religion has had on the architecture of San Francisco, including a modernist cathedral, an antique altar in a Japanese Buddhist temple, and a Victorian styled synagogue.  Experience three of the most beautiful — if under-appreciated — public rooms in the Bay area. It’s a transcendent experience no matter what religion you follow. We offer this special tour only in May and October when we are able to make arrangements to visit the interior of these three buildings and also walk past and talk about other places of worship in the surrounding neighborhood.
