St John's Cathedral stands as a reminder of Belize's colonial history, while also serving as a spiritual sanctuary for the local community. Built by slaves using brick ballast brought from Britain between 1812-1820, the church was the first built in the colony of British Honduras, and the only Anglican cathedral outside of England where kings were crowned. High ceilings, complemented by rustic mahogany and sapodilla woodwork, give the church an airy feel, while the true show-stopper, the ancient pipe organ, rests on the balcony. Don't miss the oldest cemetery in the country, Yarborough Cemetery, also built using slave labor.

2018年12月に行きました。 ベリーズ・シティーのメインストリート、アルバート通りの南の突きあたりにある教会です。イギリスの建築様式の古い教会でベリーズでは珍しい建物です。観光スポットの少ないベリーズ・シティーの中にあって、団体観光客も訪れる貴重な場所です。昼間は中に入れないようです。 more »I went there in December 2018. This church is located just south of Albert Street, the main street of Belize City. It is an old church with British architecture and is a rare building in Belize. Located in Belize City with few attractions, it is a valuable place to visit by groups of tourists. It seems not to be able to enter in daytime.
Lovely place. Lots of great stories once with the right guide
Place to visit and see beautiful inside to visit as tourists.
