Mostly, Easter sanctifies the revelation and renewal of you. So this Easter when planning your itinerary listen to your inner fashionista and be free!
Easter Sunday will see many congregations of the Church attending services at some of the most beautiful churches. The Abbey of Our Lady of Exile at Mount St. Benedict was founded as a refuge for some Benedictine Monks. Mount St. Benedict is just over 100 years old. It boasts of panoramic views and escapades of tranquility from the stresses of everyday life. Also, the Cathedral at All Saints Anglican Parish which features fine British architecture is a rare gem. It looks pretty at Queens Park Savannah West Port of Spain.
