The cathedral is worth visiting whilst in Castries. The painted biblical scenes were beautiful and there is a lovely old tree in the square outside.

The Church is in constant need of maintenance, so they have set up a donation box (locked) for that purpose. I was pleased to be able to contribute. The windows are gorgeous.
