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.

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).

We enjoyed our stop at St. Vincent de Paul, a huge cathedral and well maintained. Nice to be visit a Muslim country and know that other religions are tolerated.
