Home to Bridgetown, the capital city of Barbados, the parish of Saint Michael has many attractions for travellers and houses the international seaport of Barbados, receiving the largest percentage of tourism traffic in the island with cruise lines such as Royal Caribbean and Cunard making a stop here.
Bridgetown (named after the bridges that go over the Careenage river) is undoubtedly St Michael's most attractive spot and the most frequented by worldwide tourists. Here they can find Barbados' buzzing and colourful commercial centre offering plenty of shopping opportunities for handmade crafts and top quality island items. Broad Street is Bridgetown's main street and consists mainly of department stores and duty free shops while other more quaint streets offer smaller shops and wayside vendors. Historical sites to discover during Barbados holidays in Bridgetown, St Michael include The Parliament Buildings, the National Heroes Square with the Trafalgar Square and a statue of Lord Nelson. Other attractions include the beautiful St Michael's Cathedral and the Old Town Hall.
