This cathedral reminds me of cathedrals in Scotland and London. It is so detailed and large, I've never seen anything like it in America.

Just one of the many stops we made while visiting Savannah Ga. This was more than what I expected. I was amazed how this building was built so long ago.

We were there and had the opportunity to attend their noon mass. It’s a very beautiful old cathedral with paintings and stained glass along with a massive organ that exemplifies that time period and it’s absolutely amazing. Well worth going!

This is one of the most beautiful buildings I have seen. The amount of gold leaf is impressive. The stained glass is incredible. Don’t get to Savannah without taking a stop here.

There was a midnight Mass. Residents of Savannah told us that you have to arrive very early as the number of people are attending and late arrives end up standing outside for the Mass.
