But it's impossible not to see this attraction. I believe it's the highest in Charleston. There's so much to see here so the inside will have to be for another trip.

We visited the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist on Good Friday. It was awesome! We stayed for awhile to soak in the beauty and left feeling refreshed and grateful for our blessings.

but unfortunately we didn't get a chance to see inside, they are not a friendly people......they would bring excuses, like having mass or Funeral, which was not an accurate statement.

We stopped by and walked right in as we were walking around the city. It is worth the stop to see something so magnificent. Such a rare thing to see in America!
