St John's Cathedral stands as a reminder of Belize's colonial history, while also serving as a spiritual sanctuary for the local community. Built by slaves using brick ballast brought from Britain between 1812-1820, the church was the first built in the colony of British Honduras, and the only Anglican cathedral outside of England where kings were crowned. High ceilings, complemented by rustic mahogany and sapodilla woodwork, give the church an airy feel, while the true show-stopper, the ancient pipe organ, rests on the balcony. Don't miss the oldest cemetery in the country, Yarborough Cemetery, also built using slave labor.
