Beautiful cathedral in the heart of Savannah's historic district. Within easy walking distance of most area hotels.

Very beautiful stained glass. Small but impressive cathedral, with a congregation that harkened back to nobles fleeing the French Revolution and uprisings in Haiti. Formed in 1799 but current building only dates back to early 1900s.

A beautiful site, the steeples can be seen from our 3rd floor guest room. Worth walking by and checking out the magnificent architecture!

Visiting hours end at 5pm weekdays, so I just missed the inside - but I can only imagine it's even more spectacular.

A beautiful cathedral. I love going here during the holidays - the nativity scene is amazing. A big stop on the trolley circuit.
