We somehow kept missing when it was open, but this is a beautiful building. If you're looking for something to take photos of, this is a must stop.

Definitely worth a stop and go in and see. It is beautiful. It is “free” but they do accept donations. they are also not open all day due to mass to help plan your visit.

Stop in and admire the beautiful interior and holy ambiance. Stained glass windows, a large pipe organ and beautiful altar and ceiling make this a rare gem. Stop by and visit -- chances are you'll walk right by it.

This cathedral reminds me of cathedrals in Scotland and London. It is so detailed and large, I've never seen anything like it in America.

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.
