This August, enjoy a free, guided tour of one of New York City’s most beloved landmarks, St. Patrick’s Cathedral. Learn about the Cathedral in person as a specially trained guide will explore the history and traditions that have made St. Patrick’s a favorite destination for millions of worshippers and visitors, alike.

For example, did you know that the bronze doors of St. Patrick’s Cathedral weigh over 20,000 pounds each but can be opened with one, strong hand? During the hottest months of summer, these doors actually swell in the heat! For tour dates and times, please visit the user-friendly St. Patrick’s website (www.saintpatrickscathedral.org).
