“Ruined but beautiful church, with great view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

It is quite a climb, involving multiple steps, to reach this church, which is above the main market place. The church was partly destroyed (I believe by Hurricane Ivan) but still has a usable side chapel. Indeed, some schoolchildren were attending a service there when we visited. If you walk through the back of this chapel, you reach a garden that has a great view over the Carenage and harbour of St George's (see photo).

“God gives and takes away”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2012

What a shame this gorgeous church was destroyed. There are still interesting 18t and 19th century memorial plaques attached to some of the walls and Minton tiles on the floor. It's worth a look. I would love to see what it looked like in its glory.

“Very pretty shell of a church”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2012

We walked up to have a look around. I know it's terrible that this church was destroyed, but I must say, the rubble that remains is just ripe for an Anthropologie photo shoot. Excellent photo ops. My new husband an I had someone come take some pics of us around the site. They turned out gorgeous. It would be perfect for engagement photos. Very, very cool. Plus, there's an excellent view of the Carenage from the back lawn.

“Run down but pretty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2011

Beautiful church but roof was ripped off in the hurricanes. Built high up on the hillside affording amazing views over the city and sea beyond. Open air services still go on in the side chapel. Worth a look if you're in St George's.
