The Spreckels Organ

The mighty Spreckels Organ is built into The Palace of the Legion of Honor. Designed by the Ernest M. Skinner Company in 1924, it has 4,526 pipes and is considered among the world's finest organs. When it comes to life and roars at four each weekend afternoon, all the old bones around The Palace rise again and the whole place quivers like a living forest of stone on a cliff above the sea.
