This church won't take more than 10 minutes to go through, but it is well worth a stop. It is the oldest place for worship on the island dating back to the 1600's i believe. The original structure has been added to over the years, but it still maintains the historic charm. Many prominent figures in Bohemian history have been... More

Wall plaques dating back to 1825 commemorate lost seafarers, ship sinkings, huuricanes, smallpox epidemics, storms and more.

It was a beautiful cathedral in downtown Nassau. It's very ornate, and worth visiting. It's right across the street from the Pirates of Nassau museum, so it's not difficult to get to.

Located across the street from the Pirate Museum which is another good side trip. Loved the stained glass windows, organ and all the art work. One of the locals gave a lot of interesting tid bits about the history of the church.

Christ Church Cathedral is beautiful. The stained glass windows, the architecture, the wooden ceiling, and the peacefulness are all reasons to stop by and enjoy. Just be silent or use low whispers if you must speak to each other.
