Beautiful cathedral.
Jun 2021
Beautiful cathedral, surprisingly most of the decor is "faux" finish such as the marble columns. Impressive pipe organ too. Nice to see a church of this magnitude in the States as we have visited hundreds of churches around Europe.

Stunning Cathedral
Jun 2021
This is an amazing cathedral, reminiscent of those we saw in Italy. Beautiful stained glass windows and very ornate interior. Well worth a visit to see in person because my photos do not do justice, It was dark inside and overcast outside, so my pictures left a lot to be desired.

Beautiful Catholic Cathedral/bascillica

This is definitely a must-see when you're in Savannah. The stain-glass windows, paintings, sculptures, etc. were all exquisite. A $3.00 donation is requested.
