Since we have a Saint Louis Cathedral in New Orleans, I simply had to see the one here. What a fantastic place to worship, and the architecture is simply magnificent. A must see for any visitor to the island.

A short walk from the ship and worth a visit if you have time to walk around. The church is very beautiful inside with stain glass windows and high ceilings.

In the heart of town, beautiful church with stunning interior. Great photo op shooting the church reflections from across the street in a modern glass building. Light a candle

Unusual cathedral that has a skeletal iron spire and some interesting sights inside. It's in the centre of Fort de France in the main shopping area
