So happy we got to see this historic cathedral. It was just so beautiful. It's open in between masses too. It felt so special to be there. Light a candle while you are there.

The service here is beautiful and the music is outstanding. The stain glassed windows are beautiful but do not miss the chance to see the paintings on the wall depicting the life of Jesus. A great place to go to pray.

This enormous Cathedral is in the heart of historic Savannah and is an exotically prayerful & powerful landmark for which to visit, admire, study, film and light a candle.

Very impressive church worth a visit. Visited on the Saturday and attended mass on the Sunday. The Nativity display was incredible along with the Christmas decorations.
