Description:

Built in 1876, this French Gothic cathedral is the Mother Church of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Savannah. The parish itself was established almost 100 years earlier by French emigres. A fire in the 1890s almost destroyed the church, but the walls and spires still remained. A long reconstruction ensued which was finally completed in 1912. The church is open for self-guided touring Monday-Saturday, 9 AM to 11:30 AM and 12:45 PM to 5 but check the website for current information.
