It's a pleasant enough old church with a gift shop, washrooms & great views. The church itself has the usual church type paraphernalia inside with some very attractive stained glass windows. Worth a look.

St. Johns’s church is 400 years old and open to the public. The view of the east coast of Barbados is beautiful. This is not a destination, but a lovely stop on the way to or from Bathsheba. The grave markers tell an interesting story...More
