This is a beautiful, grand church built in the 1920s. It has two small domes decorated with tiles, including tiles with images of all the Spanish missions in California. The church is one of the taller buildings in town and it is very prominent from the hilly areas around town, with the sun gleaming off the domes. It has its original beautiful stained-glass windows made in Germany and an altar from Italy. In the 1990s, it was heavily refurbished and repainted so it is now quite stunning, inside and out. This is an especially grand curch for a town of this size, again reflecting Petaluma's early prominence and wealth.

Address: 35 Liberty St.
Directions: It's just west of downtown, off of Western Ave, one of the main streets heading west from the heart of downtown.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
