Beautiful huge, old church right across from Washington Square Park in North Beach. Lovely stained glass windows. Very peaceful inside with old fashioned confessionals and real candles for tributes. You are free to walk around inside & enjoy the spirituality there.

Worth a visit if you're in Little Italy, purely because of the oddity of its address. I found out that Joe Dimaggio and Marilyn Monroe had their wedding photos taken on the steps of this church (although they didn't get married there).

This is how early San Franciscans lived. They built glorious edifices and honored God. They loved beauty. They donated out of their working class household budgets. See what penny campaigns can do. The art, mosaics, spires, photo ops, Mass, organ playing is all exceptional.

North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds
of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian
ristorante come together to create the charming
neighbourhood of North Beach, once the stomping
grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of
North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always
suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in
the city exude as much European charm and style.
