Only stopped to take a photo as I like the Sacre Coeur in Paris very much and this one is nothing like. When in Morocco, I prefer mosques.

A tragic sense in this old cathedral. On the altar were pop bottles and a contemporary "Madonna". There was local art for sale--some quite good but the art is dwarfed by the size of the edifice. I just dropped by as it is one block from Abderrahman Slaoui Foundation

One of the many symbols of the architectural treasures of Casa, the majestic white cathedral unfortunately remains under-exploited and should host much more events, exhibitions etc...

I really enjoyed seeing the church and was the only tourist there. Not much to see inside except great stained glass windows. Didn't look like it is still used as a church but they were setting up for a concert on on the front entrance. Beautiful building worth the trip if you are in the area.

The stained glass windows are extensive and impressive. The grotto isn't impressive, but the cathedral itself is beautiful and well worth the time to go see it.

Beautiful architecturally, but no longer a Church, influence of Islam I imagine. Now a museum. Part of the French colonial past.

The exterior architecture is fantastic but there isn’t much to see inside. The place used to be a church and even up to now tourists really see it as a cathedral and nothing else. It’s a nice place to visit but isn’t something that’s really breathtaking.

This could be a very nice building if it would be maintained. But it's not ... and closed. And kids use the area for football ground. The garden is not worth to even look at it. So don't waste time to go there.

Okay, so I know decommissioned isn't the right word, but it conveys what I mean, the place is no longer used as a church. I found it doing a colonial architecture walk from the lonely planet guide book, which is very much worth it. The architecture of the church is amazing, very modern. Now it's used as a sort of...
