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...More

It's an old church but is it ever nice! Very well kept and also much used by the people of Castries. It certainly is worth a visit, let it all come in on you. Sit in a pew and imagine what it would have been...More
