We have travelled the world and have seen churches in every continent...but it very easy to say that the Cathedral in in our top 5 cathedrals to visit. Easy to find if walking the Historic District. Generally open to the public, walking inside is emotionally inspiring. No other words can be added to the review other than you must visit.

I love the French Gothic architectural design of the church. It's magnificent. Inside is very beautiful and solemn.

We came by this beautiful church on our first stroll through this amazing town. We stopped to take pictures of the outside. We did not know you could walk through the inside. So sorry we did not. The pictures are incredible. Hope we make it back to Savannah some day and can take a look at the beauty inside this... More

We didn't see a service or anything, but just to walk in and admire it's beauty, it is so worth a stop! The detail in the design, and the artwork seen throughout made this one of the most beautiful cathedrals I've ever seen.

The Cathedral was such a beautiful place to visit. The stations of the cross were extraordinary. Everyone visiting was so peaceful and taking in the wonderful sights.

Worth stopping in. Donation suggested but no fees. It is very amazing. No tours or information provided inside just walk in amongst the pews on own and out.

Beautiful, reverent, and I'm thankful the church opens its doors to share with everyone. If I'm back in Savannah, I will attend a service.

The friend I was traveling with had seen the Cathedral on a previous visit and wanted to return to take photos. Both of us were surprised to see we could actually go inside and pictures are allowed (for personal use only). A baptism was taking place toward the back of the church but visitors could go in along the sides... More
