Beautiful stained glass. I wish my family would have given me more time to look around and listen to the woman talking about everything. The statue of the Stations of the Cross are beautiful.

Great place to stop and visit and cool down after a walk through the city. The architecture and art work are amazing to see.

The church was a lovely respite on a hot Savannah day. The guide was well inform d about the church and its recent and not-so-recent history. The stained glass is beautiful and there are many other works of art inside.

This is a beautiful cathedral in a quiet residential area of Savannah. The dark blue ceiling with gold stars looks like St. Francis church. It's definitely worth a quick visit and there's a nice little coffee shop across the street.

This is one beautiful cathedral. You don't have to be Catholic to appreciate it. A must see.The Gothic structure is awesome and it is steeped in Savannah history.

Really enjoyed the sights inside the cathedral. It was very beautiful. Took plenty of pictures and this place is even more beautiful at night.

I would like to attend Mass on the Sunday morning I'll be there in October, but I'll be coming from Tybee Island. What kind of parking is nearby?

Only street parking is available but usually there are places available. The cathedral also is a designated stop on the bus and trolley tours, on/off all day.
Does this cathedral have the shroud of turine on display for the public to see?

Like the other people who have replied to this question I do not believe that there are any such Holy Relics on display in this Cathedral.
