Farley Hill used to be a mansion from Georgian era and it was long regarded as one of the most beautiful mansions on the island of Barbados. Back in the year 1957 it was used for filming scenes of the movie ‘Island in the Sun’ with Harry Belafonte and Joan Collins in the main roles. The mansion burned down by fire in the year 1965 and it was opened again in the following year as a part of the national park.

St Nicholas Abbey is another notable landmark on the island, and is one of the three original Jacobean mansions that exist in this part of the world. It has a very attractive architecture and reminds of the English Jacobean houses from the 17th century.
