Cultural Exploration in Barbados

The amazing climate and stunning coastlines are just a couple of things that spring to mind when thinking of this part of the Caribbean, and they are just two of the factors that inspire people to look for properties for sale in Barbados. However, this diverse island has so much more to offer.

It is a fantastic destination for those who enjoy cultural activities and experiences. If you are considering looking for luxury villas for sale in Barbados, you may be interested in exploring some of the following attractions:

Foursquare Distillery

Rum production is an important part of the history and culture of Barbados. At Foursquare Distillery, you can learn all about how rum production began on the island and how the process has changed over the years. You will also learn the wider effect this trade has had on the economy and people of Barbados. Possibly the best part of the tour is the opportunity to purchase some local rum to try at your leisure.

Barbados Museum and Historical Society

Everything you need to know about the diverse history of this fascinating island can be learned at this museum. This educational attraction consists of wonderful exhibitions and artefacts from times gone by.

St Nicholas Abbey

If both architecture and history interest you, then this is a great place to visit. St Nicholas Abbey is a beautiful Jacobean house set in a plantation. The grounds are stunning and the tour of the house includes a movie detailing the history of the house and rum production on the plantation.

Cricket Legends of Barbados Museum

Sports lovers will really enjoy a day out to this museum, especially cricket fanatics. Cricket is one of the most popular sports played and watched in Barbados and contributes to the rich history of society here. As you would expect, the exhibits mainly consist of cricket memorabilia and photographs.

On the Wall Art Gallery

A local artist has created each of the pieces of art on display here. You can choose to simply enjoy the art at your leisure or buy one of the pieces as a souvenir to take home. This gallery does not simply consist of paintings; there are many other art forms here, including textiles and sculpture.

Parliament Buildings

Regardless of whether you are interested in architecture, politics or history, a trip here is a fantastic cultural experience. Located in Bridgetown, these buildings replicate the Parliament Buildings in England but on a less grand scale. The tour is both interesting and informative.

Once you have completed your search for property for sale in Barbados and bought the luxury villa of your dreams, you can begin to experience some of the amazing cultural experience to be had on the island and integrate these interesting and educational activities into your new lifestyle if you so wish. One thing is certain, you’ll never get bored in Barbados.
