St. John’s Anglican Cathedral
On South Albert Street at Regent Street, this lovely old building, one of the few typically British structures in the city, is surrounded by well-kept green lawns and next to a lively schoolyard. In 1812, slaves helped erect this graceful piece of architecture, using bricks brought as ballast on sailing ships from Europe.
Several Mosquito Coast kings from Nicaragua and Honduras were crowned in St. John’s Anglican Cathedral with ultimate pomp and grandeur; the last was crowned in 1815.
It’s usually okay to walk right in and take a moment; put something in the donation box on your way out.
