Nob hill location with a nice green park across the street. Large space with an open feel. Stained glass windows and murals line the walls. There's a labrynth at the entrance. The outside has some church related buildings and a courtyard. Yet another labrynth here....More

An historic cathedral, dated back to Gold Rush year of 1849. It is rebuilt from 1927 with Gothic style, since the original one was destroyed in the earthquake and fire in 1906.

Nob Hill
Swanky and stylish, Nob Hill sits in the heart of the
city and is home to amazing architecture and views.

those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be
rewarded with some of the city’s most beautiful
architecture adorning its peak. Originally populated
with mansions after the Gold Rush, most if not all
