If you're looking for somewhere a little different to visit, Old Devonshire Church might be just right for you. The Old Devonshire Church was one of the first churches built on Bermuda. The church itself was destroyed twice, first in 1715 by a hurricane, and again in 1970 by an arsonist. Today, the church is fully operational and guests can come take part in communion, or they can simply appreciate the limestone walls and palm trees from the outside.
