Grace Cathedral and Her Murals (16 Photos)

San Francisco’s Grace Cathedral is a beautiful Gothic-style cathedral, which includes a replica of the Chartres Cathedral Labyrinth. Click here for the labyrinth photos.

The murals cover the walls on both sides of Grace Cathedral, and they depict religious scenes, but also scenes from when California (Alta California or Las Californias) was still part of New Spain (which eventually became California of the USA and Mexico (Baja California), Grace Cathedral burning in the 1906 Earthquake and fire, and the founding of the United Nations in San Francisco. The murals are a San Francisco and California history lesson.
