The Oldest Theological College in the Western Hemisphere

History buffs who look hard enough between the newly erected chrome and concrete resorts might be fortunate enough to find an ancient hidden treasure or two. Codrington College is one of Barbados' most beloved landmarks.

Established in 1943, the still functioning structure is not only one of Barbados' most notable historic landmarks, it's also the Western hemisphere's oldest Anglican theological school. Borrowing design references from Oxford colleges, the main hall contains artistic elements and panels made of ebony, lignum vitae, and Cordia wood.

The architectural stylings of the original 17th-century plantation house currently operate as a principal's lodge, study center, and students' library. Feel free to stroll the expansive grounds, tour the buildings, or just take a moment of peace and meditation.
