You will not be disappointed when you visit this magnificent cathedral. Seated in the heart of the Historic District in downtown Savannah it presents a walk back in time. The beautiful stained glass windows are a must see. It is a unique experience!

Just amazing, the history, the architecture, the story. I advise to take your time to walk through the church, read each inscription and definitely sit and take it all in. No matter your religion, you will find peace.

We missed a tour but enjoyed walking throughout the cathedral, taking in the beauty of the architecture and stain glass windows. We were fortunate to arrive just as mass was ending so were able to hear the pipe organ being played.

We were early for an event and decided to stop in to this cathedral. The beauty was overwhelming. The church was still decorated for Christmas with an incredible creche. We spent about 30-40 minutes inside the church. It was an unexpected treat and I highly recommending taking the time to stop in to visit.

The Christmas decorations were up in church. The poinsettias were arranged as a tree...the color was gorgeous! The nativity was wonderful. The guide explained the arrangement as the old testament of the Bible leading to the birth of Jesus. No one was playing the organ but I would have loved to heard it! The cathedral is worth a visit when... More
