    Highlights of Grace Cathedral

    Grace Cathedral is famous for its mosaics by Jan Henryk de Rosen and its replica of the Ghiberti masterpiece "Gates of Paradise." The stained-glass windows are also considered true works of art, and many visitors come from all over the world to view and photograph them. The centrepiece of the church artwork is the AIDS memorial chapel altarpiece by Keith Haring. 

    Many come here to explore the cathedral's 2 labyrinths, traditional structures designed to allow people to wander a maze while getting lost in their own thoughts. The 44-bell carillon, medieval furnishings, and organs round out the church highlights.
