Yahoo names St George as one of world’s top ten villages

Yahoo Travel has named St George as one of the ‘World’s Ten Most Picturesque Villages’.

Ranking alongside ancient hilltop towns in Italy and the Tunisian town of Sidi Bou Said, the Yahoo website says: “St George is the oldest continually occupied English town in the Americas, and little has changed since the Brits established residence here in 1612.

“Sure, nowadays you've got gourmet restaurants, hopping bars, and upscale shops specialising in things like hand-rolled cigars and custom-made perfumes. But it's all surrounded by beautifully preserved colonial architecture and historic sites like Fort St. Catherine, the 17th-century stone State House, and St Peter's Church, the oldest continuously occupied Anglican church in the Western Hemisphere.”

St Peter's Church was one of the places highlighted by Yahoo Travel.
