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!

I'm a history & architectural buff and enjoy visiting churches and other historical building all over the world. This church has always been one of my favorites. It's small in comparison to many but it does not disappoint. The graveyard is well maintained and serene....More

St. John's is a lovely small stone church in St. John's Parish. It's believed to be one of the oldest churches on the island. The church commands a very pleasant view of the sea surrounding coastal areas.

Nice historic church with a beautiful view of the bay. I believe we were told this is the oldest church on the island. Gentlemen that works in the gift shop is very friendly and gives great advice on things to do and see in Barbados

St. Johns is an historical church with magnificent views of the coast. It's worth a short stop on a tour. There are local vendors on the lot for souvenirs and snacks.
