Cathedral of St. John the Divine, St. John's
Categories: Sacred & Religious Sites, Tourist Spots
Built hilltop on a foundation of fossilized reef stands the stately, white, Anglican church Cathedral of St. John the Divine. The church is in its third incarnation, built in 1845 after earthquakes took its two predecessors.
