“Huge Cathedral on a Small Island”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

St.Peter's is definitely worth visiting if you go to Likoma Island. It is surprisingly large and has a unique history.

“Fun visit”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

Make sure you get the guided tour. They took us up into the clock tower! Not for the faint hearted as you have to bend, shimmy, and climb. We visited all 7 of the chapels and most of the rooms. This was a fun experience after our mountain bike ride into town.

“2nd Largest Cathedral in Africa”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

Said to be the second largest cathedral in Africa. It is oversized for this little island. The site was located by Dr. David Livingstone. There are still colored glass windows imported from England.
There are colorful nuns in bright blue and white habits. The walk through the town to get to the site was a treat itself. The store front names made me smile. "God Only Knows Hair Salon."
