St. Peter's Church

St. Peter's Church may have been destroyed in an earth quake, and then again in a fire just over a decade later, but time and again it has been rebuilt. Now, in its third incarnation, this church is a popular tourist attraction for the Georgian architecture and small offering of historical religious artifacts on display inside.

What to Expect

Some of the most unique artifacts at St. Peter's Church include a communion plate donated by Sir Henry Morgan and the tomb of Lewis Galdye, which tells us that he was swallowed up in an earth quake, then spit out of the earth into the ocean, where he swam until he was picked up by a boat.

St. Peter's Church features Georgian architecture and, despite how often it has been reconstructed, much of the original cement and brick walls.
