Well worth the time to visit. Historical building and great period architecture. Walking the inside of the Church and the grounds opens the imagination and gives you a great perspective of the culture.

We visited St. Michael's while on a 360 tour of the island. As a funeral director, I live for a beautiful cemetery with lots of history. This was one of the most beautiful views from this side of the island.

Spent time having a look round the outside of this cathedral as well as the inside. Not quite so central but worth the walk through the town. It also has a very interesting interior.
