St John's Cathedral, Belize City

(3.6/5 based on 90+ reviews on the web)
St John's Cathedral stands as a reminder of Belize's colonial history, while also serving as a spiritual sanctuary for the local community. Built by slaves using brick ballast brought from Britain between 1812-1820, the church was the first built in the colony of British Honduras, and the only Anglican cathedral outside of England where kings were crowned. High ceilings, complemented by rustic mahogany and sapodilla woodwork, give the church an airy feel, while the true show-stopper, the ancient pipe organ, rests on the balcony. Don't miss the oldest cemetery in the country, Yarborough Cemetery, also built using slave labor.

  • レンガで積立てられた英国式の教会です。早朝だったので内部には入れませんでしたが,レンガが隙間なくきっちりと積まれた迫力ある外観を見れました。 
  • Uma das paradas do nosso city tour com o engraçadíssimo Raymond, como colonia Belize é católica mas tem um pouco ainda do Anglicanismo. 
  • Reminiscent of British Colonial buildings. Modest church, nothing overwhelming. The grounds are well kept and it's across the corner from the old Governor's house. It makes for a nice walk to get here...  more »

  • It's a great attraction due to its preserved state. The exterior alone is quite impressive. However, you may not be able to view the interior if there is no service (mass) or another scheduled event.
  • Recently went to a wedding here. The Church is historic and it has been kept in good conditions.
  • Simply Royal and historic....old and elegant and still serving the Lords words.
  • Beautiful school ever.
  • Went to church on Easter Sunday
