You have to go inside to understand the beauty in this place. The Cathedral was open to the public our trolley stopped, they only ask you to leave a donation if possible. No one can even imagine the craftsmanship and the countless hours it took to sculpt the inside. Please stop by and take a look, you won't regret it.

The church is for everyone to see. A truly rewarding experience. gh

This was by far the most beautiful church I've ever been in. Just the outside by itself is beautiful but then you walk inside and it will take your breath away! All the stained glass was amazing. There really are no words to properly describe how beautiful this church is. It's free to go in but there is a donation... More

Beautiful French Gothic cathedral in Savannah Historic District. Soaring Twin Spires and dramatic interior. Must see stunning stained glass windows, murals and dramatic altar. Great photo opportunities.

Cathedral of St. John the Baptist is a beautiful old Catholic church. It is definitely worth walking through while in Savannah. They just don't build churches like this anymore!

The best ever! A wonderful experience, the stained glass is to die for. Very beautiful inside and out, well kept up, easy parking and also on all the tours and across from a peaceful square. Words can't describe.

The outside is so understated that when you go inside, you're blown away. Even if you are not religious, a must see.
