Like most churches in the Caribbean, built with prestige and when a lot of wealth was available. These days are gone and the churches need to see how they get the funds to maintain everything.

Easily found as you can see the bell tower from all over the centre of town. Beautiful both outside and inside, light and airy with some lovely stained glass windows. Do go in if only for a few minutes.

A dominant feature in the centre of town in a small square, an open imposing 125 year old building, nothing special but clearly the historic heart of the community after the volcano destroyed St Pierre.

Modern style Cathedral located in the heart of the town well worth a visit. Striking external architecture with a gothic edge. Interior standard lay out but main feature is some beautiful stain glass windows. Opposite is a pleasant square with ornate buildings, fountain and greenery.
