  • A pleasant surprise, I found the exterior unattractive but the interior is overpowering. Great expressions of religious art in a magnificent environment.  more »
  • Great and imposing tranquil church with amazing architecture. Be sure to go down stairs to the memorial crypt.  more »

  • I visited on a very special day, but can't say what does it called though. It was peacefully all around and special when the ocassion was still going on. Such a lovely chorus. Down at the basement level you got see some famous people were buried. It was Holly moment for me. I bet you too gonna enjoy it.
  • Strikingly beautiful and massive church in downtown LA. One of the biggest churches I’ve ever been to. I was lucky enough to visit when the organist was playing and it was beautiful. Interesting design in that the church is asymmetrical and architecture has lots of weird angles
