Step back in time and experience the history and heritage that blossoms at Pedro St James. Known to locals as Pedro Castle, this great house is the oldest surviving stone structure in the Cayman Islands. It is also known as the birthplace of democracy, and home to Cayman’s many cultural and historic tales. Built using slave labour in 1780 by a wealthy Englishman, this home earned its name as a castle due to its sweeping mahogany verandas, sturdy stone walls and slate roof. At a time when most people lived in small thatch houses and Cayman’s population was approximately 900 people,, this spectacularly built three-storey home certainly was Cayman’s castle.
