Saint Mary's Cathedral - Review

This eye-catching Expressionist Modern cathedral was built in 1967, and it thought to be one of the greatest architectural accomplishments it the city. Reaching 58 metres into the sky, and topped with a 17 metre golden cross, the church is an arresting sight. White marble flows elegantly over the exterior. Inside, 2400 people can be seated, and huge windows look out over sweeping views of San Francisco. The centrepiece is a 14-tonne kinetic sculpture.

The cathedral’s also humourously called the "Our Lady of Maytag" or "McGucken's Maytag", as its exterior somewhat resembles a large washing machine agitator.

Saint Mary's Cathedral is one of the tourist attractions in San Francisco One Day Itinerary. You must visit this amazing tourist attraction in San Francisco.

Saint Mary's Cathedral, San Francisco Reviews

Google+
  • one of my favorite pieces of architecture in San Francisco, the way the light and shadow moves along the exterior throughout the day, when the sun is out, makes the structure into a sort of sundial and unlike any other building I know in SF. From many spots around SF you can see the S-curve shadow on the upper facade of this building. The interior is also worth viewing if you have time, great views and shadow activity on the interior as well.

  • Don't miss it. Not a typical Catholic church. Modern building with huge Interior space. Not a historical site.

  • Really Appreciate Viewing This Monument When Religiously Commuting To Guitar Center. I Can't Help But Smile Every Time Driving By And It Gives Me Positivity For The Rest Of My Day!

  • Beautiful sculptures around the church and modern stained glass windows. Very modern architecture. They offer free docent tours when there isn't a prayer service scheduled.

  • I love the Gregorian chant Holy Mass. I always bring my out of towner relatives here for Mass.
