Make time to visit this beautiful church. The architecture is amazing. Make sure you are respectful and do not try to visit during church Mass times on the weekends or during the week. They will not allow you to enter the church during Mass times...More

Fortunate to bump into a docent who kindly gave a brief history of the church, its restorations and its present state as a thriving parish. Most memorable architectural detail for us was that all of the pillars are metal finished to appear like marble.

Lovely cathedral in Savannah. We were fortunate to be there when a docent was giving a short talk about the history and art work in the church. Beautiful building worthy of a short visit. Donations are accepted but not required.

A church that rivals many European cathedrals. Make sure it is open and pay the $2 candle fee to light an alter candle, or make a donation.

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.
