At the end of July I had the pleasure of viewing the Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception in Castries, St. Lucia. It was given the honorary status of a Minor Basilica on 11 May 1999 as part of the centenary celebrations. Besides the stunning architecture, the interior design stunned and enthralled me! The interior is decorated  by St. Lucian artist and National Cultural hero, Dunstan St. Omer (more information on him can be found here).
