“Interesting stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

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!

“If you are in the area peek inside”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2014

I wouldn't make a special trip to see this place but since we were at the square anyway we took a look inside.

“Cathedral is the highlight of Castries”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2014

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 buildings and beautiful trees. I think the Cathedral is the highlight of Castries.

“Worth seeing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

Worth the walk to see this beautiful old church with painted wooden ceilings and a bit of history. 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, so that was a bonus.

“Worth visiting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

a beautiful church....has definitely had some damage from storms and hurricanes which is a shame. You can see that they don't have the funds for restoration but lovely to walk through and we have been to many churches around the world. If you are looking for a comparison to Europe, don't. Recognize the fact you are in the tropics.
