Treasures of Center Square - walking tour

See Philadelphia's iconic LOVE statue (mandatory selfie op!) ... the beauty of the Wanamaker Eagle and the world's largest working musical instrument ... 200 sculptures adorning City Hall ... the magnificent Masonic Temple ... the art deco beauty of the Pennsylvania Railroad building ... the neoclassical grandeur of the Ritz Carlton ... the Beaux Arts-styled Union League ... the world's largest clothespin ... and majestic 4-story murals among other fascinating finds*.

ALSO INCLUDED will be an interior tour of the grand Masonic Temple, a National Historic Landmark. From the outside, its Norman cathedral-like exterior rises wondrously across the street from City Hall, but its interior architecture is amazing and varied. Oriental Hall (one of seven unique architecture halls), for instance, replicates part of the
Alhambra, with its Moorish grille-like features. Gothic Hall has royal high-backed 19th Century hand-carved oak chairs and is a grand homage to the European Knights Templar.
