Charleston is known as the "Holy City" because it guaranteed its settlers religious freedom and liberty. As a result, immigrants from across Europe fled to this southern state to escape persecution. This unique Holy City Church Tour offers travelers a 2.5 hour walking experience that showcases how the various faiths and historic houses of worship across Charleston have managed to create one cohesive, holy city. Visitors will see the oldest Baptist Church in America, which was founded in 1682, and make stops at other historic sights like Kahal Kadosh Beth Elohim Synagogue, Trinity Methodist Church, the French Huguenot Church, Saint Michael's Episcopal Church and more. Your guide will also take you to historic graveyards where those who played an essential role in American history are laid to rest.
