“Impressive Afro-Carribean Church”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

This church completely captivated my attention. It is the largest church in the Caribbean with breathtaking afro-victorian architecture, beautiful ceiling, frescoes and other ornamentation. This is a "must" visit when in St. Lucia!

“a beautiful place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

I would ask visitors to respect the beauty and tranquility of this church.Many of the pantings have been done by the well established and very talented St Omer family. It is a place of worship and is peaceful when all around you is confusion.

“Beautiful vibrant murals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

After having read several tour guides about what to see culturally in and around Castries, St. Lucia, the Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception was at the top of my list. It is located in Derek Walcott Square. When entering church, the hubbub of the street outside falls silent. You don't need to be Christian to feel reverence for this worship space. There is a particularly poignant statue of the Pieta. Don't forget to look at the ceiling where there are also subdued paintings. The beautiful vibrant murals painted by Sir Dunstan St. Omer throughout the church are a national treasure. Visitors can show their appreciation by a donation.

“What a Splendor of a Church”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

Absolutely brilliant and breath taking afro-victorian architecture in the middle of the Caribbean. The Church is decorated with artful ceilings and ornaments. Dont miss the nightly mass if you are into catholicism.
