St. Johns is a beautiful old church, dating back to 1645 and the resting place of many leading Bajan's. Its location is just stunning, with fabulous views out to sea.

Beautiful old church, built in the 1600s. Head round the back to explore the grave yard & tombs. The back of the graveyard also offers a great view of the ocean.

The interior of the church is worth seeing - and the exterior for the grave sites and the most awesome view - definitely a great place to see and appreciate the history of the church.

The church itself is somewhat ordinary. The graveyard in the back is more interesting with the gravestones and tombs. Lots of history here. The views are amazing

There isn't a cost associated with visiting the church. You can freely walk around the grounds and even enter the church. But it would be nice to leave a donation which would go towards the upkeep of the church :)
