Anglican Cathedral (a)

Across Back Street is the Anglican Cathedral. The Church of England is the state church of St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

The interior architecture is plain, but there is some opulence in the details. The sancuary walls are covered with memorial plaques.

The chandelire is striking. Below it, now covered by a carpet runner, is the memorial to the british officer credited with killing Chatoyer, the carib chief who is now the first National Hero of St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

There is an interesting lectern and other decorative pieces of liturgical furniture.

Includinf a baptismal font.
