Worth a visit even if not a Catholic. 24 Murals by Christopher Murphy conserved from the original paintings. Extensive body of Stained glass; Still a work in progress but a magnificent Cathedral.

Absolutely breathtaking! Gothic arches marching down the interior of the building, huge stained glass windows, an overall majestic effect. Almost larger than life. Immaculately kept.

This is a gorgeous Catholic Cathedral. It was built in the late 1800's & has beautiful stained glass windows. It is similar to the Cathedral in New Orleans. A must see when in Savannah.

The windows and the space is just breath taking and if you are fortunate enough to be in town while the Savannah Philharmonic is playing here, you will not want to miss it. The sound is magnificent and emotional, yet not at all stuffy.

This is worth seeing no matter what religion you are. The stain glass windows are unbelievable. They were many art students sketching the outside when we arrived.

The artwork and architecture are breathtaking, so even though you might be sitting, your eyes will be incessantly wandering to all the... More

The churches in Savannah a worth a tour of their own, with the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist being the cornerstone. This is more of a castle than a church, the architecture will take your breath away. A must see in Savannah.

Absolutely beautiful. Ornate architecture with incredibly detailed stained glass windows. Truly an American treasure, among the top ten cathedrals in the country. A must see if in town.

A must see. This place is truly amazing. The stained glass windows, the stations of the cross, alter, ceiling, organ and the largeness.
