Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament reviews
Beautiful Cathedral in downtown Sacramento, CA. Very reverent and chock full of gorgeous stained glass windows and arches. Historic place right nearby the California Capitol. Easy access to light rail and a few blocks from Old Sac. Well worth a visit outside and a peek indoors.
This is a beautiful place to visit and to worship (if you are into that). Regardless what you believe or who you believe in or do not, i would still recommend going to visit this place at least once to see how your "donations to the lord" was spent. However, i will say that it was spent very well, if it was intended to create a spectacular house of worship. I still find it weird that this "Reverse Robin Hood" (give to the rich by taking from the poor) mentality is used. However, as a place to visit i would recommend to any one to witness this place.
