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.

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.

This cathedral is beautiful inside! The stained glass is gorgeous. The stations of the cross are carved from a single piece of wood. The baptismal basin is beautiful. The church is something to see and should be a must see when visiting Savannah.

One of the most beautiful cathedrals we've ever seen, on par with the great cathedrals of Europe! We were able to participate in a quick tour and a discussion of the cathedral's history. One of the highlights of our trip to Savannah!
