“This is a must see!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

This is the oldest cathedral in this region where many kings were crowned. When visiting the city, this is one of the places you must visit. its within walking distance of the town square.

“Lovely Sunday service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

I thoroughly enjoyed worshipping here on a recent Sunday morning. There was a special service to bless and pray for the government run electric company! St. John's is definitely worth a visit anytime to both worship and learn the history of Belize City. Government house is just out the back.

“Not much else to see in belize City”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

Belize City is a dump with almost nothing to offer. If you get stuck there for more than an hour go see the church.

“A piece of history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

A 3 minute walk from my hotel, I visited the cathedral and stayed more than half an hour. Lucky for me, a group of small children with their teacher was inside rehearsing for an upcoming event. There are several tombstones and, inside the cathedral, plaques for deceased persons. The lively young children provided a wonderful contrast to the memory of dead people. The building is of course no match for the great cathedrals of Europe, but it is a nice neighborhood church that captures some of the history of the country. Entrance is free and when in Belize City, is worth a short visit.

Across the street is Government House, also worth a visit.
