Landmark Attractions

St. John's Church

One popular destination is Cotton Tower Signal. It is found within southwestern Bathsheba. While there are several other signal stations on the island that you can enter for a panoramic view of Barbados, Cotton Tower is not one of them. Instead, a walk around the grounds might give you pause to think about what life would have been like for a soldier in charge of standing watch on the grounds over a century ago.

Another common landmark for vacationers is St. John's Church. It is located within St. John Parish, 2.5 mi. Southeast of central Bathsheba. Featuring classic Gothic architecture, the St. John's parish church was built in 1831 to replace the previous church which had been destroyed by a hurricane -- a theme you see a lot with the churches on Barbados.

Morgan Lewis Sugar Mill: One of only two entirely intact and restored sugar mills in the entirety of the Caribbean is located on Barbados. That sugar mill is called Morgan Lewis.
