We were able to tour the cathedral honour island tour, as well as participate in a Sunday Mass. Both were great experiences! The church was built over a century ago, and is being carefully renewed. The original artwork is beautiful, and I sort of hope they don't touch the ceiling. It looks like such a labor of love! When we... More

While visiting St. Lucia in April 2017 we took the time to run by the Church. You can visit inside and out and worship if you wish. Very old church within walking distance of almost anywhere in the Capital.

Small church which could easily be missed. Reminder of the Spanish colonisers. Still used as a church with Caribbean style architecture rather than western design.

This is the largest Catholic church in the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS). Its stained glass windows are gorgeous and the sheer size and style for a church in a small Island was unbelieveable. It is still standing after the city of Castries have been through 2 devastating fires and many hurricanes and earthquakes in its past history. Over... More

Still a working church and open daily for worshipers, very large, and is suppose to be the largest in the Caribbean. We visited during mid day and there were quite a number of worshipers, so we did not walk around and take many photo's of the inside of the church like we wanted. Gorgeous architecture and vibrant colors within the... More

They say that this is the largest Cathedral in the Western Caribbean, and I'm not about to argue with that. The Cathedral is truly impressive, more so inside than out. The cavernous interior is both daunting but strangely comforting, with open louvred windows allowing zephyrs to cool the air. But the crowning glory of this Cathedral has to be the... More
