We stopped at the Government House during our tour around St Lucia. There are a set of beautiful ornamental gates and a view of the house - access is not allowed.

We did a quick pass by when we went on one of our tours. Really nothing to brag about just a gated property with a big White House.

The Governors house is situated off the main road just outside of the capital Castries. The building is beautiful and situated in its own grounds. You can't go in but worth a stop for a photo
