“Gorgeous Cathedral”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

St. John the Baptist Cathedral is breathtaking. The stained glass, Stations of the Cross, murals and history are not to be missed while in Savannah.

“Beautiful. As a cathedral should be”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013 via mobile

We attended a Latin Christmas Mass for the first time ever, and what an experience!
If one is not Catholic, the architecture, painting, pipe organ, building are worth a walk through. It is a reminder of the awe of God through the love and craftsmanship of human hands

It was really breathtaking. The stained glass was beautiful as was the ceiling and murals. Worth a looky loo.

“Stunning!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 November 2013

When in Savannah, make time to stop in and explore this beautiful cathedral. The paintings, stained glass and alter are not to be missed. The ceiling alone is worth the time.
