Absolutely beautiful! Nothing can prepare you for the stunning beauty of this church. The outside of this church is incredible, but it's the inside that you must see. Try to get in on the tour.

The interior is great. You must wander around in a counter-clockwise rotation to read the different depictions, and be sure to enjoy the ceiling, and many stained glass windows.

The church is absolutely beautiful. One of the gracious volunteers talked with our group and told us the history of the church and answered all of our questions. She was very informative. You only need about 15-20 minutes, well worth your time here.

We're just wandering on our own, so we were lucky to stumble on an entertaining docent who was very knowledgeable on the area history as well as the church's history.

This is like a church in Europe! It is just beautiful and very grand. I stepped in here for a few minutes and it was so worth it, Savannah should be very proud of this beauty, it is rare in the USA

There was a midnight Mass. Residents of Savannah told us that you have to arrive very early as the number of people are attending and late arrives end up standing outside for the Mass.
