Very artistically finished with art & Stained glass & historically documented by the people of St. Lucia.
We stopped at this church while on a Maximum Chill Tour, it was an interesting stop on our journey. Be wary of a man who claims to be the pastor of the church, he doesn't actually work there. If you donate make sure you give it to the church itself!
I wouldn't make a special trip to see this place but since we were at the square anyway we took a look inside.
St. Lucia’s nature beauty is the major attraction of the island; however, Cathedral of Castries is the center of the Castries. The large wooden church is uniquely Caribbean style. Multiple paintings are on the walls and the ceiling. The historical building needs restoration. Walking a block around the church, you can appreciate the exterior of the Cathedral and many other...

As is often the case, the locals have "dressed it up" with decorations that distract from the architecture but it was worth the hike from the pier to see and photograph. Walcott square was right next door with it's 400 y/o tree,... More

Recognize the fact you are in the tropics.
We liked being in the middle of the capital city. But the driving was pretty challenging.

The Cathedral is one-of-a-kind. it is in disrepair in some places. I was glad we took a... More
It was ok just for a brief visit - seemed very busy with weddings, funerals etc. Some guests found it good to visit on sundays
This is well worth a visit. We had a walk round Castries before taking a taxi tour around other sites, and called in to the cathedral. It was empty and beautiful. Tours don't seem to stop here, but drive by, so well worth stopping. Very uncommercialised but open and available to visit.
We skipped our cruise ship's shore excursions to wander the streets of Castries to see what the town was like and to see how the St Lucians lived. We came across the Cathedral of Castries and were surprised to see that it was Roman Catholic, rather than Anglican. Although many of the islands of the eastern Caribbean were British, St... More
