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.

The outside is outstanding but the inside will leave you in awe of the beautiful alter and the beautiful stained glass. A must see.

SS Peter and Paul is a very pretty church outside, but the inside is simply magnificent. As to the outside, it is the largest and most striking building on Lincoln Square. If you are there in the morning, if the light hits it right (which...More

The stained glass and altar was stunning. Really glad I made the walk. Must visit for anyone interested in architecture or who want somewhere peaceful to visit/pray/reflect. Candles are $5 each to light and understandably go to the upkeep of the Church.

A very unusual street address. Anyways this is a nice cathedral on Washington Square. If you get there for mass you will notice that it is in Italian. Nice building.

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.
