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...

The church is gorgeous from the inside and out. but don't go expecting a church. this is now a community center and tourist destination which affords visitors a stunning view of Casa from the spires. there are always a lot of kids playing soccer right in front. don't mess up their game by walking straight through, or you might be...

This cathedral looked better when I viewed it from a distance at Place Mohammed V. But at short distance, the outside looked not very well maintained. Dirty walls and broken windows. It didn't look to be a rich church ... and I guess perhaps it's not really popular with the locals ...

The inside of the church is empty and a little eery, but if you pay the small admission fee you get to climb up a bunch of old, dilapidated stairs that take you to the roof where you are rewarded with AWESOME sites of Casablanca. Definitely recommend it.

Moroccans are famous for their acceptance of other races cultures and religions. A great example is this church. What makes it worth a visit are its stained glass windows reported to weigh 20 tonnes. Recommended

I went there with great expectations. The outside is very impressive, but the inside - empty! I don't know what they try to do with it, but it felt terrible to see it dirty, with wire in the room to prevent birds from flying around and over all the impression of a dirty place.
