The capital of the South

Luxury mega-malls, the World of Coca-Cola, and world-class museums are just some of what make Atlanta an attractive travel destination for so many Americans and foreign visitors. Atlanta also offers lesser-known attractions that define the soul of the city, like Victorian buildings and historical landmarks, a rich assortment of skyscrapers, gorgeous parks, and year-round festivals. Atlanta will keep you busy for days, but even those who spend just a few hours here will never forget the pearl of Georgia.

Cathedral of Christ the King

Cathedral of Christ the King

Famous Cradle of Catholicism

Cradle of Catholicism Editors' Note

Built in 1936, the Cathedral of Christ the King has striven to find new ways to get message out to parishioners, prospective parishioners and visitors to our beautiful city. It keeps company with several churches on a scenic stretch of Peachtree Road in Buckhead.

A spectacular French Gothic architectural style of the olden world was selected for the Cathedral of Christ the King. The church can seat more than 700 people. Fr. Moylan showed foresight in building so large and beautiful a church. Its aged, stone exterior and stained glass windows have placed itself in the list of prime attractions in Atlanta.
