St Mary's Cathedral - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT

Panorama taken outside the Cathedral of St Mary of the Assumption. This panorama shows the unusual architecture of the cathedral which seems to take on the impression of a graceful square based pyramid, only to flare out at the top to form a cross. Look at the satellite image on the San Francisco Google map to get a birds eye view of this modern church.

It is also the metropolitan cathedral for the Ecclesiastical province of San Francisco.

The current building is the third to bear the name and was opened in 1971. The original was built in 1854 and is now known as Old St. Mary's Cathedral. This modern and architecturally innovative Cathedral includes an events center which can accommodate up to 1000 people. There is a gift shop and guided tours of the building. It was designed by Pier Luigi Nervi and Pietro Belluschi in the 'Structural Expressionist Modern' architectural style. The Cathedral is open to all and warmly welcomes visitors.
