Bajan secret

Dating back to 1627, St James Parish Church is the oldest church on Barbados. It’s also home to ‘Devil's Gate' in the western wall. The story goes that this gate is opened just about an hour before the services begin and later when the bell tolls. The Devil is said to leave through the gate and away from the holy proceedings.
