Must see while down in Savannah. The stained-glass windows were breathtaking. And the cathedral itself was beautiful with, high ceilings ornate columns and stained glass windows all over on each side. It's a great place to just sit and relax especially when one's been walking around town. And there was only suggested $2 donation.

The cathedral is truly stunning, beautiful. The stained glass windows are just the beginning, the art is moving and colorful.

If you are in Savannah, you must take some time (before 5:00 and not during noon mass) to visit this cathedral. The interior is awe inspiring and reminiscent of cathedrals that we visited in Italy, only this one doesn't have centuries of grime making it look old.

We visited the Cathedral this past weekend. My family and I were in complete awe over the Cathedral. We even were able to sit in during mass. This is definitely a must on anyone traveling to the historic district.
