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

If you like seeing magnificent churches, add this one to your list. It is centrally located in old town and on every trolley tour route. Stain glass windows are wonderful and the Stations of the Cross rather unique.

If you are in Savannah's historic district, this is not to be missed. Beautiful stained glass, intricate ceilings, and helpful docent who was happy to tell the long and interesting story of the church. It was somewhat bustling when we were there which detracted from what should have been a peaceful and contemplative place. For the optimal experience think about... More

We've had the chance to visit cathedrals in Italy, Brazil, Argentina, and Mexico. Once you enter the doors of the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, you'll feel moved and will be impressed with both its' grand structure, and with the many details of what's inside. The Stations of the Cross are especially beautiful and impressive to see. No matter... More

The Cathedral spire can easily be seen from most points in this small town, and the interior is just beautiful. The place is peaceful and visitors are allowed to take photos and walk around or sit as they please, with no time limit and free entry, though it's polite to leave a small donation if possible.

A beautiful church. Beauty like Saint Patrick's but smaller. Ceiling was art of its own. Open to all.
