This cathedral has stained glass windows and is also one of the oldest cathedrals in Savannah. Due to time constraints, we were unable to do an inside tour.

Walking around town And spent an hour here during a downpour. Beautiful historic cathedral with an amazing story of rebuilding following an early 1900 fire. We are not Catholic but are religious and deeply admired the sanctuary.

Originally built in 1870s, though destroyed by a fire 22 years later. It was completely rebuilt using the original design. Gorgeous Catholic cathedral Be respectful, do not visit during scheduled mass times, cells volume down and hats off. Worth walking and admiring!

This cathedral is overwhelmingly opulent inside. The stained glass is everywhere and absolutely gorgeous. Not to mention the murals and statuary. I am not Catholic and it felt a little irreverent gawking and taking pictures inside a church but they allow visitors and it is...More

Only street parking is available but usually there are places available. The cathedral also is a designated stop on the bus and trolley tours, on/off all day.

Like the other people who have replied to this question I do not believe that there are any such Holy Relics on display in this Cathedral.
