We attended Mass at this church and were treated to the music of the beautiful, semi-professional choir. They had an impressive repertoire and the music carried very well in this church. I believe there are free tours after every Sunday Mass but we did not...More

This is a very pretty old church. We were the only ones there so no crowds to worry about and could take all the time we wanted looking at the nice stain glass windows.

The columns and arches and the stained glass made for a beautiful backdrop for Handel's "Messiah" as performed by the Charleston Symphony Orchestra.

We were looking for something seasonal yet religious, and landed at the Cathedral 11:15 mass. It is not to be missed as the choir is fabulous. An old fashioned high mass.

Stopped in to visit on my walk around the city. I was not disappointed. It is absolutely gorgeous inside. The stained glass windows are beautiful. So quiet and peaceful inside.

...but fairly ordinary in contrast to many other cathedrals we've visited. Nice stained glass is OK. Definitely fine for serving its primary mission as a house of prayer, just not particularly awe-inspiring.

This is an amazing cathedral! The sculptures alone are worth the visit! You really have to see! Especially if you've never seen european cathedrals, it's very like!

I'm not a Catholic - but the visit was well worth it to view the beautiful sanctuary. Would like to return when it is decorated for Christmas.

The church was open when we visited over the Thanksgiving holiday. Such a peaceful, lovely church. If you take one of the Charleston tours, ask them about the steeple on top of the church!

An amazing church. The stain glass windows were beautiful. The interior was quite a surprise from the fairly austere dark brick of the exterior. Worth a look.
