The Cathedral of St. John the Baptist – Savannah, GA

On our US Route 17 Holiday Road trip, the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist in Savannah, GA was on my “must see” list.   And the church did not disappoint — it is absolutely beautiful.

The cathedral sits on Lafayette Square in downtown Savannah.    Construction on the cathedral began in 1873 and completed in 1896 with the additions of the spires.    It was almost destroyed by fire in 1898 but survived, although needing extensive repair.  

It was beautifully decorated for Christmas — quite a sight!   And it appeared to be the “busiest” tourist attraction too!
