On my first visit to this unexpected gem in Jamaica, in 1984, the Dean spotted me to be an Englishman and asked me if I could arrange repair of the stained glass with a Birmingham, England artisanat they had last dealt with in the 1930s. So I did (even though Birmingham was 100 miles from my home). That is how special this Cathedral is.

I was married there some 45 years ago. My father-in-law was the Canon in charge. So of course it is a good place to visit; what else could I say? But what a place - steeped in Jamaican and English history. Get someone to talk about that and you may be delightfully surprised about, not least, tales of serious pirates becoming governors. And, of course, routing the Spanish!
(The date of my visit is wrong. Earliest in April 1975, but many, many times since then) We return to this place almost every time we visit the island. History? You bet!

A small group of us staying at an “All Inclusive” Resort in Runaway Bay took a day trip to Kingston yesterday.

We passed by Spanish Town and our tour guide Steve suggested we visit this historical church.

Built in 1714, this is the oldest church in Jamaica and was originally Roman Catholic before becoming Anglican.

Architecture dating to the 18th Century - a small church but steeped in history and definitely worth a visit.

Definitely worth a stop. Lots of history here in a beautifully maintained sanctuary, although we were told that services are no longer held here. Ironically, although one has nothing to do with the other, it's within a few blocks of the Kingston prison. The Rodney Buildings and town square are also within a few blocks and there is a sign that chronicles the history of the area.

We have been to this church twice, the second time bringing another couple from the resort to see such a historical church. They are more than happy to provide a tour and tell you the history of the church inside and out.

When we were there this year and walking about the outside of the church, there were a great amount of butterflies flying around. Besides taking pictures inside the church and out, I had to take a video of the butterflies flying around. Also during this visit, the organist was playing, it was wonderful.

The tour cost is a donation amount of your choosing.

Check it out.

This is more than a church. The building stands magnificently in its own grounds and is worth a look even if you only have time to see the outside and grounds. I found it a little weird that it was so close to the prison but soon got over that. The inside is even better if you have the time.

This cathedral is the oldest Anglican church outside the UK, and was created a cathedral in 1843. The cathedral contains many interesting monuments and tombstones relating to it's colonial past. I was given a guided tour of both cathedral and churchyard, which added to my enjoyment and knowledge.

As the oldest cathedral in the Caribbean-Commonwealth, this cathedral is a treasure to experience. The architectural details, my favorite being the busts decorating the base of the large Gothic style windows of the Chancel, are eclectic and help convey Jamaica's colonial past. I also enjoyed the many example's of Bacon's sculpt work. I was most surprised by the number of monuments and memorials, the cathedral is literally filled with them, it would be a challenge to walk the entire cathedral without stepping on one. During our tour we enjoyed the enchanting music of the pipe organ.
