    This was one of the best experiences on St. Thomas. Our guide Agi was knowledgeable, friendly, welcoming and very personable. She was patient in her explanations and very good story teller. Make sure you pick up something at the gift shop.

    Our visit was 1 May 2022. The steps are located in front of Blackbeard’s Castle. So we walked down and back up the steps. I did could 99 but two steps are double so they could be considered two steps. You get to see the homes in the area and all the beautiful flowers along the way.

    We had been on this street years ago coming off a cruise ship. The area look much as it did then except that so many shops were closed or non existent. For the ones that were there they are friendly and welcoming. My jewelry stores. Emeralds are the big jewelry besides diamonds. T-shirt shops and other things. Its hard to come back from 2 category 5 Hurricanes in 2017 and Covid stopping the Cruise Ships. These people are resilient and it won't be long before their back. We still had a great day

    During our trip 28 April - 3 May 2022, this site was where Carnival activities were. Did not get the opportunity to go inside but it is a huge building. Kept up pretty nice compared to some other old sites in the area.

    Our visit was 1 May 2022. The 99 steps are located in front of it. You can not get into it because of the hurricane damage from 2017. So it is closed but you can still see it. You can get some nice views from this point of different areas of island. Not much to say after that.

    I got to see undisturbed views of Magens Bay Beach! The turquoise blue color of the water is unreal. There were also some vendors up there.

    As part of our tour of the island we stopped at the overlook where we could see our cruise ship and the city. Great views and beautiful scenery

    Concise Review

    Beautiful Cathedral to celebrate Mass

    -----

    Longer Review

    We visited St. Thomas, USVI, for the first time in 2021, and had a great time.

    One of the highlights was celebrating Mass at the Cathedral of Saints Peter & Paul.

    The cathedral is mostly repaired from the hurricanes in 2017… it sounds like possibly only the air conditioner still needs to be replaced.

    The building’s exterior is a beautiful shade of golden yellow. The stained glass windows celebrate the Sacred Heart of Jesus the lives of saints and encourage us to become our saints ourselves.

    Paintings on the ceiling celebrate Jesus as a child, the Trinity - God the Father, the Son and Holy Spirit, and Jesus’ Passion… and above the altar Jesus’ Crucifixion.

    The theme of this weekend’s homily: This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad.

    It is a small world…
    We’re from St. Louis, MO, and Belleville, IL is a few minutes away, just across the Mississippi River, 30 minutes from our house… after Mass, as we said “Hello,” Rev. Msgr. Jerôme Feudjio shared that he served in the Belleville Diocese for a while… he knows where we live!

    The Feast Day of St. Peter and Paul happened to be that week, so the parish was celebrating. After Mass they shared cake and drinks with us… tasty… and more importantly, so welcoming to us visitors.

    Thank you, parish of the Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul, for letting us celebrate Mass and your feast weekend with you!

    I saw a few people gathered in this area, but there was not much to it. I would like to have seen what this area was like before the pandemic

    This building is worth a visit when in St. Thomas. The pulpit is very unusual. The church welcomes tourists and the architecture is interesting.

    Visitors are welcome for Sunday service. The church was open through the week as well. Around 80 were in attendance the Sunday we visited. It was a "light" 60 minute service in a beautiful light-filled, breezy sanctuary. Worth a visit for everyone needing a bit of reflection amidst the shopping, eating and sight-seeing of Charlotte Amalie.

    A wonderful walk through history on St. Thomas. We enjoyed every minute of our visit at the synagogue. “Agi” was very kind and explained every detail beautifully. It was really powerful sitting in that space. We are so glad we had the chance to stop here on our trip and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting the area.

    This roadway was very scenic with the Caribbean Sea, the nearby Islands, and the views of all of the mountains of Saint Thomas. There are shops and restaurants alongside this road. Please be careful when crossing the street as not all of the drivers yielded to me. The sidewalks go for miles!
