“You're in Castries? So visit here”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014 via mobile

It's a large cathedral with special architectural features. Wood stained ceilings with artwork etched on its surface. Stained glass windows. Huge tall ceilings and a real sense of peace - no matter what your religion is you should visit this cathedral. Most St Lucians are catholic so the church in each town is usually the biggest building in town.


Tips?
Park in the parking deck by the water and walk 10 minutes - the streets are tight and packed.

Get out if the heat and rest a while in the cathedral - and if you need an ATM there is a bank across the road!

“Historic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2014

If you like old Churches, this one will not disappoint. The caretaker on site was very knowledgable with the history of the Church and also St. Lucia.

“Average Cathedral”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2014

If you are looking for the Duomo in Florence or even Winchester Cathedral you won't find it here.Nevertheless it is worth a visit from the point of view of having said one has seen it. Don't expect to be bowled over.

“Interesting stop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

We stopped at this church while on a Maximum Chill Tour, it was an interesting stop on our journey. Be wary of a man who claims to be the pastor of the church, he doesn't actually work there. If you donate make sure you give it to the church itself!
