St Peter and St Paul in San Francisco

St. Peter and St. Paul parish church, run by the Salesians.
Another beautiful church I came across in San Francisco is dedicated to St. Peter and St. Paul, a parish church run by the Salesians. It reminded me so much of my home-country of Malta, because it is built out of limestone. My impression is that it was built in two periods, with the two belfries constructed recently, as the limestone looks more clean. I noticed this church from the top of Lombard Street, and made sure to walk towards it until I was stunned by this massive church, possibly built by Italian masons.
An elaborate reredos as part of the main altar.
