St. George’s Church in Basseterre | St Kitts & Nevis

Basseterre is the capital of Saint Kitts and Nevis.

In the early stages of the French occupation of Basseterre, a Roman Catholic church was erected in the town by the Jesuits and dedicated to Our Lady.

Notre Dame was burnt to the ground in 1706 during the Anglo-French War by English soldiers who were billeted there. The Church was re-built by 1710 and renamed St. George’s.
