OK, here's the history. (I took a picture of the sign.) This Gothic ruin was a church begun in 1874 to replace St. Peter's Church. It was built to seat 650 people, so it's really large. The architect was William Hay of the Scottish firm...More

The story behind the church made it more interesting. Good place to get unique photos. It may not be a destination but is an interesting discovery in St. George.

Seems odd to preserve an unfinished church ⛪ in the middle of prime real estate but it does have some historical significance, which is the primary reason it remains standing. Was hoping for more parkland to picnic but other options in the region are available.

The fact the the cathedral is unfinished is the curiosity - most churches in this state elsewhere were first finished then destroyed somehow. This one never made is due to internecine warfare among parishioners; hurricanes and $$ earmarked for 'this', going to 'that'. Because it...More

An unfinished church from the 1800’s. Read plaque on side of church. Quick visit only 5-10 minutes to view.

Very interesting reasons why it was never finished. I wish they would go back and finish it but I guess it draws more people this way.

Very interesting architecturally, long uphill walk though from town, worth visiting with a good camera, lighting from the sun is unusual on the remains of the building.

I am from Bermuda and this cathedral has a history about the local people. Find a Bermudian there in the area and you will get the correct facts on this. Many are superstitions however, some are very true. It is a beautiful area and I...More

Beautiful scene of St. Georges from afar and within walking distance of St. Catherine Beach. Shame it was never finished as the architecture is beautiful, and well planned. Politics this church early in the 1700 1800s, such a shame. Lots of care taken.
