“So peaceful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

We arrived not knowing what to expect and from the other side of the church a voice said " Hello welcome to St Michael´s feel free to enjoy our church "
The Cathedral is very simple and very beautiful and sums up the simplicity of the time of building.
The vicar siad that they were hoping to have a explanation of the families buried in the grave yard in the near future.
You don't have to be highly religious to enjoy this place, I would have loved to hear the gospel singing, perhaps another time.

“St.Michaels”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

Lovely church on the outskirts of Bridgetown. Beautiful inside with interesting plaques and the graveyard is full of 19th century memorials and mausoleums. One of which was built by my ancestors and is shaded by a magnificent breadfruit tree. Well worth a visit.

“Very Interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

The structure of the cathedral and the history were impressive. It was also very open, which allowed my wife and I to do some exploring.
