“Ribbed Vaults, Stained Glass & Faux Marble - all in Savannah”

Incredibly beautiful basilica - ribbed vaults, stained glass and faux marble. If you can time your visit to when one of the volunteers discusses the history of the cathedral - do that! Very...

“A beautiful, must-see in Savannah!”

We were in Savannah for two nights in July and made a point to attend Sunday Mass in this beautiful Cathedral. It is definitely a must-see if you enjoy spectacular churches.

This church is a must see, absolutely beautiful! Breathtaking from inside and out. A $3.00 donation is recommended but not required.
