This church's claim to fame? Relics of St. Paul's wrist bone and a piece of the pillar on which he was executed. The church is not crazy popular, so there were very few people there. It smelled like the Haunted Mansion from Disneyland inside and...More

This church needs help and renovation but is well worth a stop. Each section is a separate chapel and the wrist bone and pillar of Paul are in the church. Not a far walk off the main streets.

Slightly off the main tourist way, this church is simply lovely. It's a great comparison with St. Johns, which is beautiful in a very different way; this is more solemn, telling a story.

To stand on St Paul's Bay and imagine the shipwreck which brought Christianity to this Island is inspiring. To follow the course of history and consider the impact of that shipwreck on 2000 years of history is quite profound. The outside of the church unapologetically...More
