All Cathedrals are worth a visit! You don’t have to be Catholic to appreciate the beauty and dedication and the intricate details and labor of love.

They have a elevator for wheelchairs or scooters on the side of the Church (street side), it is small but adequate for 1 scooter and 1 to 2 people. They also have a school on site so it was very crowded when they dismissed for...More

A really special place. Thankful that they let people come in to marvel at the history and show respect in their own ways.

The Cathedral is absolutely beautiful! Immediately felt at peace when I entered. If you enjoy visiting old churches, this is a must see.

Beautiful old time church. Such a large place and a great place to visit. We were here prior to restoration and not since

Beautiful place and very historic. This was the most enjoyable thing I did while I was in town. Suggested donation is $3 and you pretty much only get to see the sanctuary. Worth the time to visit

It is a beautiful church. It was also a nice free stop along the trolley route, although donations are accepted.

It was our first time ever viewing a Cathedral and must I say that this one is absolutely beautiful inside and out! I was speechless! Pictures do not do it justice so you have to see it in person!

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.
