Cathedral of St. John the Divine, St. John's

1.1
#3 of 9 in Historic Sites in Antigua and Barbuda
Religious Site Tourist Spot
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. The church bears Baroque-style architecture, with two twin towers topped with cupolas and iron gates. The wood interior and crumbling cemetery show signs of age, but the site remains one of the best places to take in panoramic views of the Caribbean city that it overlooks. Be aware that renovations are ongoing here. Put Cathedral of St. John the Divine on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our St. John's trip builder.
