Historical Buildings of Barbados
Experience the classic grandeur of bygone Barbados with this fantastic historical tour of St. Nicholas Abbey, St. John's Church and Clifton Hall Great House.
St. Nicholas Abbey is a restored Jacobean mansion built in 1660. A full tour showcases the great house, full of antiques, a rum and sugar museum complete with tasting, and artifacts from the Plantation's 350+ year history.
St. John's Church is a classic Gothic church orginally rebuilt in 1836 to replace its predecessor which was destroyed by hurricane in 1831. The church sits on a cliff and offers unmatched, spectacular views of the Paleologus, a descendent of Emperor Constantine the Great, who died in Barbados in 1678.
Clifton Hall Great House, St. John, is a fascinating plantation home dating to the 17th Century. Ferdinando Paleologus, buried in St. John's Church, held it from 1656, and a new Caribbean Georgian wing was added in the 1800's. Recently restored, this beautiful 13,000 square foot home sits on over 300 acres of lovely landscaped grounds and boasts an orchard of over 250 fruit tress. Clifton Hall, with its fine antiques and artwork, offers an exquisite glimpse into the elegance and grandeur of plantation life.
