Gorgeous from outside but wait until you go inside. Breathtaking. They have little tours but we did not do this. Kinda reminds me of the cathedrals in England. Really impressed and would recommend a visit.

We were fortunate to catch this incredible attraction during the early morning hours and got to see it all and take some great pictures as well. I have been to some great religious sites in my life and will always remember this one as being extraordinary. I loved my time here.... Just Bob...

Wonderfully cathedral. No rest rooms but a nice cafe across the street with great ice tea and buttery scones. Plus a friendly staff and a bathroom

The church was very nice and stained glass windows made it one of the finer churches in the south. Easy access on the trolley route
