Amidst a tranquil setting, the marble front of St. Barnabas Chapel glistens in the sun. Enter the massive dark timber to discover pews inlaid with mother-of-pearl shells and rose windows. Used by England’s missionary workers, the chapel was built using stone from ruins of the New Gaol. A small cemetery with intriguing headstones and a huge fig tree in the back further add to the heritage.
