32/50.- San Francisco, Sts Peter and Paul Church

Among them, at 666 Filbert, the silhouette of Sts. Peter and Paul Church. Also known as the Italian cathedral or the Church of the Fisherman, this neo-Gothic cathedral was founded by the Salesian fathers and consecrated in 1924. Originally a parish church for the Italian fishermen, Sts Peter and Paul church is to this day the departure point of the annual procession towards the Fisherman's Wharf for the blessing of the fishing fleet, in October. Masses in Chinese, Italian and English are held here weekly.

As we are at the very street that goes all the way to Coit Tower let's take a look up and down the street.
