Cathedral of St. John the Baptist

This magnificent Gothic cathedral with its twin spires is one of Savannah’s most noted landmarks. It is also the oldest Roman Catholic church in Georgia and the seat of the Diocese of Savannah. The parish organized in the late 1700s and erected its first church on Liberty Street. It wasn’t until 1876 that the cathedral was built; tragically, it was destroyed by fire 20 years later. When the cathedral was rebuilt, the original designs were used.
