Owner description: Built in 1660, this church overlooks the Scotland District and features a pulpit made of six different kinds of wood.
Reviewed 1 January 2018

Situated up on the hilltop the views are simply beautiful. History buffs will have a pleasant surprise here.

This church suffered a couple of setbacks/devastation through the years and was rebuilt each time.

There's a feeling of calm and serenity while walking around the grounds and reading the tombstones.

There's no entrance fee and parking is available.

Recommended!

Great historic stop as you travel the East coast of Barbados. The church grounds are well maintained. Views of the East coast are just spectacular! Lots of history in the burial grounds behind the church. Highly recommended a visit.

We have been here many times but always return, the views are amazing, the graveyard dates back to the 1600's.Take the time to stroll around, and sit for quiet reflection inside the church

The church is interesting to wander around as is the graveyard. The last primeminister of the Island is buried here but there are graves dating back to the 1700's. The views from this hilltop vantage point are wonderful.

I am not a religious person but I actually truly enjoyed a quick stop at this place - it's a perfect combo with Bathsheba if you rent a car.

Really cool architecture and amazing views from the hill - worth the drive!
