A classic catholic cathedral with soaring ceilings, magnificent carvings and paintings of religious scenes and figures. The stained glass is worth the stop whether you are religious or not. Take time to enjoy the craftsmanship it took to fill the space with light.

As soon as you walk in it’s breath taking. A must see, even if your not of the Catholic faith. It’s free to walk around, but be respectful to mass. Either sit quietly and take part or get out and wait until it’s over.

Though we are not of the faith we visited. They call it the Sistine Chapel of the US. Absolutely stunning sanctuary, stained glass and all. It wasn't decked out for Christmas yet - but the usher who answered questions described how they decorate.

Beautiful, ornate details! Loved it! Visited on a Monday morning so there was plenty of street parking and it was quiet inside. If you visit on a Sunday, touring hours are only 2pm-5pm due to regular mass schedule.

I visit Savannah often, but spend a lot of my time shopping and drinking versus seeing many of the "sights". This time I went on a short walk to see the cathedral and it was just absolutely stunning. Definitely worth viewing, although we didn't get...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.
