Saint Jago de la Vega Cathedral

Traveling is about making new discoveries! The world can be anyone’s oyster from the rural vineyards of France to the remote beaches of the Caribbean. Traveling brings both new memories and exciting opportunities to learn about different cultures! The island of Jamaica is a luscious scenery featuring both vast mountains and tropical rainforests. The third-largest island of the Greater Antilles, Jamaica is the birthplace of reggae music and jerk chicken! Apart from its delicious food and feel-good music, Jamaica is also home to many historical sites that tell the story behind the island’s rich culture. Located in the parish of St.Catherine, in the city of Spanish Town is Saint Jago de la Vega Cathedral, one of the oldest Anglican churches outside of England!

Not only is this a beautiful monument but one of my favorite places I visited while in Jamaica. Below are a few snapshots I took!

From the brickwork structure to the intricate wooden details, the outside is not only appealing to look but a great church full of history!

While the inside of the church is graced with beautiful wooden beams and white molding that lace the walls furnished with dark wooden benches and various religious artifacts

But the most intriguing part of this cathedral would be the graves that encompass its structure.

Overall, Saint Jago de la vega cathedral is definitely worth a trip because it not only makes a great background for selfies but immerses you in true Jamaican culture.
