Impressive Churches in Pittsburgh





Pittsburgh Landmarks

Pittsburgh boasts a selection of fine ecclesiastical structures that are well worth a visit. Saint Stanislaus Kostka Church in the Strip District is a beautiful building constructed in the Polish Cathedral style, a blend of Baroque and Romanesque with Byzantine influences. The church was consecrated in 1892 and features twin towers with seven large bells, one weighing 2,500 lbs. Saint Stanislaus contains some of the best German stained glass in the nation.

The campus of the University of Pittsburgh features 2 stunning church buildings. The Heinz Memorial Chapel is an interdenominational place of worship constructed between 1933 and 1938 in the neo-Gothic style. But the most impressive “church” in Pittsburgh is the Cathedral of Learning, constructed between 1926 and 1934. Although this magnificent, 42-story tower is built in the style of a Late Gothic Revival Cathedral, it isn’t a religious building at all. It is a university teaching block and administrative building designed to be a symbol of life and progress.
