Additional observations St. Andrew’s was founded in 1886, the same year of the first Tournament of Roses Parade and incorporation of Pasadena as a city. The church was completed in 1927. Located in Old Town Pasadena, it is a Byzantine-style structure modeled after the Basilica of St. Sabina in Rome. Its sanctuary contains magnificent murals created by Italian painter Carlo Wostry; there are impressive marble columns, stained glass windows and statues. The interior artwork took eight years to complete. It has a Romanesque campanile bell tower visible for miles around, and its bells can be heard tolling regularly. It is one of Pasadena’s landmarks. There is a restoration committee that works to preserve the church.
