Have been here before during the day to tour the grounds and inside but this visit was excited to be staying close so got to see the outside at night.

Attended mass here while we visited savannah. Must have been 2 or three weddings that day. Walk around the surrounding village squares for great photo op.

There was a midnight Mass. Residents of Savannah told us that you have to arrive very early as the number of people are attending and late arrives end up standing outside for the Mass.
