Immaculate Conception Church, Castries

4.2
#2 of 8 in Historic Sites in St. Lucia
Admire the ornate, vivid interior of Immaculate Conception Church, seat of Castries' archbishop. Built in 1897, the 61 m (200 ft) by 30 m (100 ft) church features a brick and stone exterior, which arguably belies the dazzling scene within. Step inside to admire the interior's elaborate mural depicting biblical scenes, painted by St. Lucian artist Dunstan St. Omer. Pay special attention to the painting above the intricately carved altar, detailing the island's patron Saint Lucia. Enjoy the quiet (and the shade) of the peaceful interior.

    Worth going inside to see the beautiful murals and stained glass. We were disappointed that the nearby square was closed.  more »

    Without anything special. Certainly worth seeing inside. If you walk along the streets of Castries, the visit to the Church is a welcome change from the drab rest of the city.
