  • As part of the taxi tour we had booked in Jamaica, we were taken to St. James Parish Church. The church is not comparable with the magnificent churches in Europe, but is very interesting because authentic, in all cases worth seeing.

  • An interesting church preserved to this day, built between 1775 and 1782. In 1957, it underwent work after an earthquake. The greatest church of Montego Bay, with a cemetery and tombstones 200-250 years ago. Built in the form of a Greek cross, it has two monuments of 18th century sculptor D. Bacon, carved shops handmade from mahogany, organ. The church is active, it is possible to listen to the parish, to enjoy another religion and the sounds of the organ. Recommended for a meeting.

  • We toured this church recently while on vacation to Jamaica. The docent who provided us with information was so knowledgeable & we are grateful to this congregation for sharing this historic church with the public. Hand carved pews out of mahogany & the absolutely beautiful stained glass were treasures to see. I felt God’s presence while we were there.
  • The priest simply plays a lame dvd and then asks for your money. The tour guides treat this as a check on the list if things to see. Do not bother visiting this place.
