One of the most beautiful architectural sites to take in Savannah Georgia. The cathedral was built in 1873. From the stained glass to the pipe organs it is definitely worth taking a quick walk-through just appreciate the detail that went into the creation of this beautiful Monument. A small donation is appreciated.
Attended a wedding here. World class beauty and attention to detail. Felt bad that all the tourists were kept out during the rehearsal and ceremony. Great sermon and awesome organ/organist/singer and music selection. No pestering is for money at any time either. Highly recommend.
