  • Well kept and obviously loved place of worship. It includes several historical points of interest and lovely venues.  more »
  • When is a church no longer a church? When the hierarchy designates it to be a cathedral and function as the "Mother" of all the Anglican churches in the Bahamas. This cathedral was restored in 1995. I...  more »
  • Is a little removed from the Centre, in a higher position. Not visited internally because I wasn't dressed as supposed to enter a temple, but I appreciated the simplicity of their austere architectural lines.

  • Beautiful church open to the public. Photos are allowed. The people are very friendly and welcoming to visitors.
  • What a beautiful cathedral. The Christ Church Anglacan Chathedral is beautiful. The stained glass on each of the windows is astonishing. For being an older church, this looks like it's been loved. There is a restoration project under way, but it does not detract from the beauty of this place. The ceiling and organ were exquisite as well. Well worth a look if you are in the area.
  • This is the church I was christined at. Beautiful history.
  • Very pretty Church. Our ship had 2 stops, Nassau and Free Port. We used this stop for History/Culture (The church, Fort Fin castle, Queens Staircase, And walking around enjoying street performers. We walked everywhere as everything was close) and the other stop for shopping/beach. This was our first destination. We just walked right in and started looking around at all the decorations and figures. Plaques inside give you some history.
  • A pretty Church and a nice break from the hustle and bustle while cruising.
