Spiritual pilgrims of all persuasions should enjoy this super historical virtual on Nob Hill. Is open every day, but not 24 hrs a day.
Placed after Ash Wednesday services 2/25/04. The coords take you to the replica of the Ghiberti "Doors of Paradise", fashioned after the originals in Florence (though coords are spotty, you can easily find the bronze doors). This is just one of the masterpieces on this site. To claim a find, go inside the large structure (building here started in 1928) and email me the name of the "popular" saint represented in the larger-than-life sculpture to the left of the indoor labyrinth and the font. ALSO give me the sculptor's name (he was from SF) and dates of his birth/death. Allow time to visit the marvelous art of this spiritual place, gift shop/café and the indoor and outdoor labyrinths, and rest and reflect for a while. The Thursday Choral Evensong service is breathtakingly beautiful! This site is also featured in a less spiritual context in one of the hilarious "Tales of the City" books by Armistead Maupin.
