I love the beautiful windows and paintings in the sides of the churches telling of the stages of the cross, as well as memorable moments of Jesus' life. The altar areas are memorable.

Beautiful old Church and inside is just amazing. Just take some time out of your schedule and just look at the church architecture and the history is so interesting and inside is beautiful.

I visited many beautiful churches in Charleston but this was my favorite. It’s magnificent both inside and out.

I've visited a lot of beautiful church while visiting Charleston the Holy City and this is by far the most beautiful.

Stopped by here on our Two Sisters walking tour. Was interesting in its history, but I found the experience too touristy for a church. Lots of loud talking, including by the church employees on wholly irrelevant things. Seemed a little disrespectful for an active church.

The stained glasswork is beautiful. It was smaller than I expected, but I loved that - it made it feel intimate. It felt like a very active parish and I loved that as well. A placed set apart for sure.
