The Spire at Trinity Cathedral

The Spire at Trinity Cathedral

The Cathedral Church of the Holy Trinity is one of the oldest churches in Trinidad. This Anglican church was completed in 1818 and consecrated in 1823. In 1825 an earthquake caused severe damage to the Tower and the spire had to be replaced by a lead coated wooden frame. The spire seen here was installed in 1967 and is a more sturdy steel frame, again covered with wood overlaid with lead.

Trinity Cathedral stands on the southern end of Woodford Square and seats over one thousand people. At Easter time the magnificent spire is flanked by blooming trees, including the lovely yellow poui that is regarded as a sure sign of Easter.
