Religious and non-religious alike will want to visit St. Michael's Cathedral, an Anglican church that has been offering its services since 1665. Over the centuries as Barbados has changed, the church has stood.


Most guests visiting the cathedral do so to take in the architecture that has the cathedral looking more like a small castle than church. You may also want to stay for a service, and take part in a tradition that has been going on here for nearly four centuries.
