Antigua and Barbuda Sights

Anglican Cathedral of St. John the Divine

Updated 02/27/2014

Fodor's Review

At the south gate of the Anglican Cathedral of St. John the Divine are figures of St. John the Baptist and St. John the Divine, said to have been taken from one of Napoléon's ships and brought to Antigua. The original church was built in 1681, replaced by a stone building in 1745, and destroyed by an earthquake in 1843. The present neo-baroque building dates from 1845; the parishioners had the interior completely encased in pitch pine, hoping to forestall future earthquake

damage. Tombstones bear eerily eloquent testament to the colonial days.
