Reviewed March 27, 2014 via mobile

Churches are great history lessons. This us no exception. It is a great example of an early Anglican church.

“Great views to the ocean too”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

Nice historic church located on the top of a hill, with great views to the ocean. We visited this one on our island tour by Ted´s Tours. Nice place to stop by. There is also a small shop selling for example delicious rum cakes.

“A wonderful piece of local history”
Reviewed March 18, 2014

This Anglican church is centuries old, yet is an active parish today. There is no fee for visiting, but there is an attached gift shop run by parishioners who have a wealth of knowledge about the church and its historic role in the community. The views from the church cemetery are spectacular and make the trip all the more interesting.

“Lovely grounds, beautiful views, historical building”
Reviewed January 25, 2014

Walking around this old church and grounds was a very pleasant experience. A descendent of Alexander the Great was buried here...and his grave is clearly alluded to with directional markers. The views of the ocean were spectacular and the antiquity and peaceful grounds were well worth experiencing.
