This was my second visit to this beautiful cathedral. The interior is lovely as well as the exterior. Worth the walk to view it.

While not the oldest church structure on the island, this beautiful old structure oozes history that dates back to the late 1600s. Check out the unique arched wood plank ceiling that mimics a boat hull and the baptismal font the dates from 1680. The old cemetery outside is intriguing but would be easier to explore with a visitor map of the plots and their ages, many of the marker stones are heavily weathered/worn down.

The building has potential but is in dire need of repair. Hopefully through the fundraising efforts things can progress and the cathedral can be restored to its former glory.

Large imposing structure with some highlights from a long time ago. Inside the church is very plain and speaks to the roots and current situation of Barbados. The priest was very friendly and welcomed us to his church and had us participate in the mass that was going on. All the parishioners welcomed us as well.

This church is incredibly old and very interesting down to the graves under the aisle inside of the church itself. Beautiful grounds with gigantic trees. It's a quick stop to see and very worth it. It's amazing how old it it.

We visited St. Michael's while on a 360 tour of the island. As a funeral director, I live for a beautiful cemetery with lots of history. This was one of the most beautiful views from this side of the island.

Well worth a visit, for the cathedral & grounds both could do with a bit of TLC,to see some of the old headstones some dating back to the 1600s the cathedral is quite simple but still has a religious feel, the alter area was very well kept with stained glass windows looking good with the sun picking out the colours the curved wooden roof is worth a view. Considering it was built in the early 1600s & has been damaged by 3 hurricanes it is testament to the people who built it .
