What a beautiful cathedral, when we where walking someone from the church starts giving a brief history of the cathedral and that was a plus.

Unlike a lot of Cathedrals in France which are dark and heavy, this place has a lovely light atmosphere with awesome paintings on the ceilings and walls. Definitely worth visiting. Entry is free. Just be respectful of any services.

I love to peek into the beautiful old churches in the South and this one is worth a 10 minute hike off the main streets of Savannah.
