We visited this on a Caribbean cruise as part of one of the ship's tours. Quite unexpected as it has both style and history

This is a must see. While in St. Johns, walk to this magnificent site. The Cathedral is under renovation and while it is closed, the keeper will let you in to show you the progress. Impressive. Only cost is a requested donation.

A beautiful church but in great disrepair. If the story is true, they need to return the statues and then maybe their parish can thrive. I did not see any signs of work being performed but I hope the cathedral can be restored to glory.
