Beautiful church inside & out! The inside of the church looks like a huge piece of artwork from the bottom of the wall all the way up to the ceiling. Columns along the sides give it an old-world feel. Love this church & will definitely go again.

As a life long Irish a Catholic Savannahian, I realize I am very biased toward Savannah, But the Cathedral is one of the most beautiful, well kept and visited churches anywhere. Everything from Saint Patrick' statue to the massive ornate altar is captivating. See for yourself. Take a visit.

This place is absolutely amazing to experience. We went on a beautiful sunny day and our pictures from outside the cathedral turned out stunning! My only negative comment would be that when the tours come in that the guides need to be more respectful of the cathedral and the guests. I saw two guides that were so loud and just... More

Lovely old church. In the historic district so you can easily include it in a walking tour. Nice old homes around it, and a few minutes walk to the river tourist area.

Every detail of this cathedral was interesting and beautiful. We saw it quickly from a carriage ride, and went back to see it later. It was definitely worth the walk.
