Not a lavish cathedral but this IS a small, former colony populated with casual and friendly citizens. The picture does it justice and it is as quaint inside as it is out. Stop in... read more

It would be easier to provide a telling review if there was someone in attendance who could provide some insites into what we were seeing. We wandered around the grounds which were beautifully attended. The shrubs were beautiful and the trees were all nicely trimmed, but outside of a couple of bougainvillas I have no idea what plants were there.... More

This church is the oldest church in Belize country, I was actually baptized here so were my daughter and many of my family members, it has great architectural appeal and a sanctified Ora when in this place, they offer Wednesday lunch mass which is great for workers who may not be able to make it on Sunday and makes for...

This is a small church, with almost no distinguishing or interesting facets to worry about. That it was the first Anglican church in Belize is what makes it worth a stop, but once you're there, don't expect to be impressed.

I understand and was glad to read the perspective of the people that attend St John's Cathedral. It's great to read about it's personal importance to people. As a tourist however, I did not find it interesting beyond it's historical perspective. I wish I could have seen inside to have a true perspective and I was glad to see it... More

This is an interesting church building. The church was built over a period of several years using bricks brought in from England. A local told us that the bricks used in construction were brought over by several ships and as a result... the color of the bricks changed as they built up the walls. Kind of looks like it was...

We were in town on a day when a cruise ship was not in port so a lot of the attractions were not open. It was cool to walk around and see the history of who is buried there but I wish we could have gone in.

Just and old and dilaped church in the poor section of Belize City, which is a very poor city. Not what you think of when you think of a Cathedral.

I've been to St. John's Cathedral on many occasions, but 3 months ago, I went for my sister's funeral and the service was held at St. John's

Unlike some, I actually went there for worship, so it was not so much a tourist visit. But just the same, you can feel the 200 year history, and might I add I also felt more than welcomed by the other worshipers. The outside of the church has more of an 'older and historic building' than internally. Although I could... More
