Excerpt from Wikipedia

The Immaculate Conception Cathedral is a religious building belonging to the Catholic Church and is located on Church Street in the town of Saint George and capital of the small Caribbean island nation of Grenada in the Lesser Antilles.

It is a temple that serves as the seat of the Catholic Diocese of Saint George (Dioecesis Sancti Georgii). The building is located atop a hill overlooking the harbor, and is one of the most important symbol of the city. In the place where it is now a small chapel existed previously completed in 1804 and dedicated to St James. Gothic cathedral tower dates from 1818. The cathedral is completely finished in 1884.

The church had to be renewed because it was damaged after Hurricane Ivan in 2004. The temple decoration is simple compared with European Catholic cathedrals.
