This is a must see. While in St. Johns, walk to this magnificent site. The Cathedral is under renovation and while it is closed, the keeper will let you in to show you the progress. Impressive. Only cost is a requested donation.

At the moment the Cathedral is undergoing extensive renovations but is still worth a visit, there are a some good examples of 16th 17th century graves.

This is a beautiful cathedral both inside and out. This cathedral has some of the most intricate stone work on the front of it. The large wooden doors also have intricate carvings on them. Walk inside to the beautiful columns and stained glass windows. The...More
