This was probably my favorite stop in Savannah. It is absolutely gorgeous inside and still holds daily worship services. Everyone inside respected that this was indeed a place of worship and it gave me such a sense of awe and tranquility.

This cathedral was so very beautiful. Kids weren't very interested, however, I enjoyed it and wished I could have spent more time observing the wonderful architecture and amazing stained glass, etc.

Worth the time to visit. The stain glass was incredible. I recommend the cafe across the street for coffee after as well. Nice stop on our walk.
