St. John's Church, Bathsheba Reviews

  • A historic church from the 17th century. Located on a hill with a beautiful view of the ocean and the eastern part of Saint John. Next to the church there is a small souvenir shop, where you can also have a coffee and a nice talk with the owner. A must-see point on the Barbados.

  • Just a very beautiful church set on a gorgeous piece of land overlooking the coast. Very worthwhile spending the time to visit, so much history to explore.

  • Definitely worth a visit to this lovely old church with a beautifully carved pulpit and large organ. I would have liked to visit on a Sunday as there was a feeling of life, vibrancy and community there. A walk around the surrounding cemetery with beautiful views of the sea.....what a wonderful was to say goodbye to the world and meet your maker. The dates on the gravestones were very early which surprised me and I wished I'd taken the time to write them down and do a bit of research on who is buried there. Perhaps next time. A lovely bit of history which made me think how old the island is.

  • Great scenery great place for tourist attraction or raking pictures

  • This is a historical landmark church. Check out the interior, and work around outside the church as wel. It offers very nice views of the coast. There are a lot of interesting characters in the graveyard, along with a very cool sundial. Totally worth a visit.
