St. Leonard's Is beautiful. Old Italian. It's been our family parish for many years. Lots of baptisms & communions. It's small and quant. Services are held in English and Italian . Tourists come from all around to visit and pray. It's in the heart of the north end in Hanover street. But it's private and lovely inside.

I stopped back in to see how the restoration was going. It appears to have had painting done to the sanctuary since I was here a few years ago! I'm glad to see this church is continuing restoration as it is truly beautiful and historical and just a very wonderful place to pray. The Peace Garden in the front is... More

This church is beautiful. Many statues that are breathtaking. The wood floors are really antique and give that very old church feel.

The sanctuary is a quiet respite from the bustle of the north end. It is really amazing how quiet the sanctuary is relative to the streets outside. It makes for a perfect locale for reelection and appreciation of fine painting.

We were following the Freedom Trail to Boston's north end when we saw the lovely garden outside the church of St. Leonard. In a busy city like Boston it is nice to have this little plot of land on which you can stroll and meditate. Then we went inside the church which is beautiful. This is an old church, built... More

This Is our family parish. Since my grandparents came from Italy. WW2!! It's an amazing parish!!! If you have the opportunity to go and just sit at an Italian mass it is beautiful. I won't add the monks names but they are so nice...thick accents , but beautiful people. Go in, say a prayer, if you are so inclined. Look... More

During the Labor Day weekend, we saw few tourists entering this church since it's not one of the well-known historic sites. But we did a few times and wow, what a gorgeous interior! It's a Roman Catholic church so if you are RC, it would be worth visiting in time for Mass.

While my family did not attend a mass here, we stopped to look at the beautiful interior of the church. So many nice statues, paintings, etc. Worth a look!

I have been to Boston more times than I can count, but this trip is the first that I actually went and toured the historical churches. I spent more time looking at their outsides than insides. I found St. Leonard's when I was looking for a place to attend Mass during vacation. What a gem! The church was absolutely breathtaking,... More

Staying in North End

Neighbourhood Profile
North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants, bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church and Copp’s Hill Burying Ground. Take a rest in a cafe on Hanover street and observe the quirky, European character of the North End.
