This is a beautifully restored church with lots of information provided. It's in very good condition considering how long it has stood there. It's well worth a visit but mind the ants and mosquitoes!

A bit out of the way but very accessible by a decent road up towards the hotel. There is a pavilion in the corner with much literature and the essential story.

This is a very neat stop on a tour of Nevis and is worth a couple minutes of your time. The gate was locked when I was there and I'm not sure if it ever gets opened. Either way, it is a cool stop.

As you travel round Nevis you will see dozens of churches that have survived for 3 and 4 hundred years. This is the first church to hold integrated services. A trail blazer for its day. I speculate that it's current state of being is a...More
