All Saints Alley.

All Saints Way - Wall of Saints

Nestled in the North End of Boston, this alley is called All Saints Way. Behind an iron gate you can see the Wall of Saints, portraits ascending up the exterior brick wall of the adjoining building. This tribute to Roman Catholic saints was placed there by Peter Badassari.

Only a couple blocks off of the Freedom Trail. Door was locked, but still cool.

We stumbled across this alley in the north end and the creator, Peter Baldassari, told us all about it. Very nice guy.

[Shane Sher, 02/23/2011]

Baldassari has filled the wall in a narrow alley with portraits he's painted of Roman Catholic saints. He was inspired by a shoebox of holy cards he accumulated as a child.
