     History
    The construction work began in the year 1874 when St Peters Church was badly damaged by a storm and was thought to be beyond repair. So a new church had to be built. Although the construction work of the new church was started, it could not be completed due to various reasons. One of the main reasons was strong difference in opinion within the parishioners. A local population felt that they would rather invest the money in repairing the old church instead of building a new one. There was also severe fund problems. The construction of this unfinished church was almost immediately stopped.

    In 1926, when the church remained incomplete, a strong hurricane destroyed much of the construction work carried out until then. Today, the picturesque ruins are a protected historic monument and part of the St. George's World Heritage Site.
