Must see and the most impressive structure in Savannah. Great history and ask the volunteer to explain it.

We toured the Cathedral in the morning. It was very beautiful, with a variety of stained glass windows and murals. It is said to be known as the Sistine Chapel of the south. A must see.

Beautiful service. The organ played, the choir sang and the incense hightened the atmosphere. I can't remember the last time I attended Mass with incense. Uplifting.

This is a stunning, striking, magnificent, majestic cathedral. The stained glass, stations of the cross, pews, columns, ceiling, and everything else in the interior are so impressive, detailed, and ornate. This was a must see stop.

There was a midnight Mass. Residents of Savannah told us that you have to arrive very early as the number of people are attending and late arrives end up standing outside for the Mass.
