Small church which could easily be missed. Reminder of the Spanish colonisers. Still used as a church with Caribbean style architecture rather than western design.

This is the largest Catholic church in the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS). Its stained glass windows are gorgeous and the sheer size and style for a church in a small Island was unbelieveable. It is still standing after the city of Castries have been through 2 devastating fires and many hurricanes and earthquakes in its past history. Over... More

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 the inside of the church like we wanted. Gorgeous architecture and vibrant colors within the... More

External appearance not very appealing but internal appearance makes up for it. Impressive stained glass and painted ceiling designs.

A stop by on our tour of the city. Gorgeous architecture and colors within the building. Well maintained. Worth the visit if in Castries St Lucia.

They say that this is the largest Cathedral in the Western Caribbean, and I'm not about to argue with that. The Cathedral is truly impressive, more so inside than out. The cavernous interior is both daunting but strangely comforting, with open louvred windows allowing zephyrs to cool the air. But the crowning glory of this Cathedral has to be the... 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 like 200 years ago when this Cathedral was built.

Loved my visit to this church, with a history voice-over from my guide. Really stunning building, which I would love to have seen "in action" for a service.

We called by here when walking around the Castries just next the Derk Walcott Park. Take in both. The Cathedral is over two hundred years old and is amazing architectularly. Well worth a visit when in Casries and is a short distance from the Cruise Terminal if you have time after your ships tours.
