You can't miss the cathedral if you go to the Avenue Habib bourguiba. The century old monument is preeminent, built in a byzantine style, giving a certain cachet to the city. Inside the place is quiet and resourcing but nevertheless quite well decorated.

I guess this is the Cathdral that I went to in Tunis. It is a very nice Cathedral. Needs a lot of renovation inside. I took some pictures, but when we wanted to take a group picture the security told us it is forbidden to take pictures.

I always find this cathedral on the main street of Tunis a pleasant place to pop in for a total change of atmosphere.

Built in eclectic style over a hundred years ago, it sums many elements of bad taste. You run over it in the main avenue.

Nice cathedral standing in the main Habib Bourgiba Avenue, just some 100 metres from the Medina entrance. It looks great outside, but the interior is very simple.

It is a nice cathedral. If you have time on your walk to the Medina take 10 mins and walk around. It is not a trip on itself, but worth looking at it if you are already in the neighborhood.

For many Tunisians the idea of secularity is unthinkable and the reinforcement of the country's Arab/Muslim identity is paramount. Despite this, the country's Christian edifices are open to all comers (and I have noticed that since the revolution an increasing number of young Tunisians visit the cathedral, perhaps simply curious to see what the Christian religion is all about).

To find this, head for the Medina and it is on the right and beautiful. Very calming and once inside, away from the hustle and bustle on the streets outside.
