This is an old church building right in the heart of Charlotte Amalie. We like to visit these old buildings as the architecture is so interesting (note that the pews in the back of the church go sideways) and it is amazing that these buildings are still standing after hundreds of years. The altar is beautiful and it is worth... More

What a beautiful church! When you mount the wide stairway toward the entrance you feel as if you are about to do something important with your life. The furnishings on the inside are done well. The sanctuary is kept clean and available to visitors. While I know that the church is located on an island, I must say that the... More

If you are into church's then this is worth the few steps (not 99) up the hill to visit. Interesting architecture as it's constructed like an upside-sown sailing ship. Very helpful staff.

The church is rather a beautiful building that has a lot of culture and history. The signs outside the building provide a lot of information and the church is open to the public to either tour or worship in. If you like local history and culture I would recommend stopping by. It's located to the right of Government Hill/ Emancipation... More

A very pretty church in Charlotte Amalie, with a pleasing exterior. We just popped in to look at the interior and a small band was practicing for the Sunday Service. Dark Caribbean wood interior and cool.

After our ship docked, we spent the morning snorkling, then walking downtown, then we came to this church, and it was good to sit down and rest. Very quiet and peaceful inside (very well kept too). Didn't see any pastor or church workers. Not many people visit the church as the main crowd just pass by it from a block... More

St. Thomas has a nice historic walk. Make sure you do it on a day that cruise ships are in port. Otherwise, the only attractions that will be open will be ones like this one.

Loved seeing the pictures in side of the city before it was built up. We enjoy any history, and found this a nice stop.
