We decided to pull over for a quick look, it's a beautiful cathedral. There was a man at the front to answer questions or give history. Glad we stopped!

Very beautiful church. We had to wait for a service to be finished but well worth the wait. The stained glass windows & pipe organ were very impressive.

Beautiful cathedral! Reminiscent of Sistene Chapel and Notre Dame. Highly recommend visiting! On Sundays it opens for tourists around 2:30pm

I've seen churches all over the world. This one can stand up against any of them. It is on the hop on/off trolley and I recommend stopping. It is magnificent.

This church is gorgeous and a must see. Stained glass and hand carved statues. Be advised: come before 11:300 or after noon mass-they will not allow visitors during daily noon mass time.

This is a must-see. The Tiffany stained glass alone is worth over $6.5 million. The church is absolutely gorgeous and free to visit, though a donation is accepted. Craftsmanship like this just doesn't exist anymore, and seeing it is a bit breathtaking. If you're in...More

Absolutely stunning. A glass was going on while there but you could barely even hear it. The stain glass was gorgeous.

Having visited some of the world’s most stunning churches, I’m always open to taking a peek in an old cathedral. This place will never hold up against the internationally renowned churches, but for a small town in Georgia it was quite beautiful. The blue ceiling...More
