Belize is fairly small and this attraction is right in front of the Government house so you can "kill 2 birds with 1 stone. lol". Plus side is that you can access it any time and there's no fee to visit it. It is interesting to know that this small Anglican Cathedral is the oldest Anglican church in Central America.... More

This was the first of many downtown stops of interest that our charming guide, Kent (501-662-4597) treated us to. My wife & i enjoyed it's history and architecture. Took a lot of pictures here :)

Our taxi driver tour guide took us here on our tour of the city of Belize. It is a nice piece of colonial history and an interesting building built by slave labor. We did not get to explore the cemetery. There is some nice stained glass and mahogany wood carvings. Worth the visit. They do ask for a small donation... More

The simple architecture and realization of how old the actual building is and how many people have passed through the doors seeking guidance is a peaceful experience. Well worth a stop and visit.

This historical landmark is currently operational as a place of worship and school. It was on our tour with Calypso Train Tours and a wonderful photo op. Our guide was very knowledgeable with the cathedral's history and explained that the cathedral was built with bricks that used to ballast slave ships. It was very interesting. The cathedral is the oldest... More

We walked by it ax it was close (at1500). The history and architecture was worth the stop. Try to fit a stop on your walk of the town

I personally love to visit old places that are still being used. St. John's is just such a place. You can admire the old brick work, stained glass, and how the church is set up to serve it's parishioners today. A fun little visit for a history buff.

The added electrical fans and lighting hanging from the ceiling take away from the interiors charm, but the front door and the exterior are beautiful.

The Cathedral, built in 1812 of bricks is truly a place to visit. The guide at the office told of its history with reverence....The British, after winning the Battle of St. George's Caye and deciding that this land will now be our home, started erecting landmark buildings in the settlement of British Honduras -- using the bricks that came on...
