Visit St. George's Anglican Church, a parish with a striking view of the city's waterfront. Originally the St. Jacques Roman Catholic church, built in 1690 by the French, the site was taken over by Protestants in 1784. In 2004, the building suffered damage during Hurricane Ivan, but some parts, including the stained glass window depicting Christ, survived. The bell on its square tower still chimes every hour; climb up to have a look from above. Examine the memorial plaques on the walls and the floor tile work. The church holds daily services and welcomes visitors in the small side chapel or in the open air.
