Beautiful Cathedral a must see stop while touring Savannah. They provide an information session on the history of the church for free, you can light a candle and purchase a Christmas ornament as a remembrance of this amazing location/ donations accepted and well worth it.

This church was very unique you can rarely see like this beautiful French gothic style church. Even though I like The Patrick's Cathedral in NYC the most, I couldn't forget its beautuful windows and arches. God Bless Savannah!

Unfortunately, I was only able to see it from the outside because of time constraints. Worth seeing from the outside only though. A must see! Make sure to make time to tour the inside as well. Wish I did! So very beautiful and awe inspiring!!

We made a brief stop here while on a Trolley tour. The architecture is magnificent. There was a guide on site that gave a brief explanation of the church's features and was able to answer questions.

Gorgeous, old southern architecture. Very kind man (clergy?) who showed us a few things and invited us to Sunday night service and a free dinner afterwards.

This cathedral is breathtaking. I was overwhelmed by its beauty and in awe by its grandeur. Lots of interesting history as well.

We attended Sunday morning mass, and we’re totally blown away by the architecture and art. A wonderful experience, that was enhanced by the large, loud and wonderful pipe organ. A truly wonderful place.

A must-see destination in Savannah. Gorgeous inside and very European in style. Very ornate altar and stained glass windows. Be sure to let the staff tell you some of the details.

Yes, they have docent tours. We were there on a Friday, and they were starting one about 1:00, just as we were leaving, lol. Don’t know how many a day they have.

Not inside the church. However, I'm not sure about service dogs. That might be permitted.
