The Cathedral Church of Saint Peter and Saint Paul, commonly known as Washington National Cathedral, is not only an active Protestant Episcopal church, but a historic landmark, too.

Closely modeled on the English Gothic style of the late fourteenth century, the Washington National Cathedral is both the second-largest church building in the United States and the fourth-tallest structure in Washington, DC. Construction of this popular church began in 1907 when the foundation stone was laid in the presence of President Roosevelt and ended 83 years later when the “final finial” was placed in the presence of President Bush in 1990.

The public is invited to worship services, prayer, and other spiritual visits, for which admission is always free. Fee-based guided tours, including specialty Behind the Scenes tours, are available, as well as special events. See their full calendar here.
