Worth a trip inside. We were on a trolley tour, and since my husband and I were the only two on the tour, our driver stopped by the cathedral and let us go inside and look around and take photos.

A beautiful cathedral with a public square in a nice area with a lot of shops and dining. Quite a spectacular church for a city of this size. Be sure to descend the spiral staircase inside on the left near the front.

What a lovely historical cathedral. It was super hot when we were in Mobile, but I'm glad we took the time to see this cathedral. The stain glass windows are breath taking.
