The cathedral was beautiful and the stain glass windows are breath taking the church is well kept up and very beautiful. The people there were very nice and told us a little bit about the church's history and the meaning behind various things.

Worth a short stop to appreciate the beauty and solemness. One of the cooler places to sit and reflect the day we visited.

We stopped into this lovely church when we were walking all over Charleston. We wandered through the beautiful inside with its big stained glass windows, beautiful altar and statues as well. It is worth stopping in on your tour around the city.
