One of the most beautiful churches that I’ve had the pleasure of visiting in the United States. It’s on par with some of the cathedrals that I’ve visited in Europe.

Definitely worth your time to stop and look around. The stained glass windows are amazing as well as the entire church. We listened to a church member talk about the history of the church.

Must visit place. Peaceful and beautiful! We arrived exactly on time for the Saturday afternoon mass 5:30pm and we really enjoyed the words and the songs sang during that.

This Cathedral is breathtaking. A must see in Savannah. We were fortunate enough to have someone giving a talk about the history while we were there.

If you are Catholic, go to Mass here. Absolutely beautiful with exceptionally beautiful music, all the traditional things like incense in a historic setting.
