A really interesting interesting place in central Tunis

The Cathedral is a strong testimony of Tunisian tolerance in the Arab world. Not particularly interesting on the artistic side, definitely worth a visit on Sunday morning... read more

This cathedral was built by the French. It's imposing and unique. It's grand in size and in its beauty. It's situated between the clock with the fountains and the medina.

Lovely Cathedral, Masses in French. The choir is quite good! It's worth walking down to see, and even better if you can attend Mass.

This cathedral was once the center of the vibrant Catholic life of a French colony. It is much quieter now, but beautiful and awe-inspiring. A very worthwhile place to spend some time in prayer and/or meditation.

The Cathedral is a strong testimony of Tunisian tolerance in the Arab world. Not particularly interesting on the artistic side, definitely worth a visit on Sunday morning. Humanity matters.

Nice church, you can't miss it on the Avenue Bourguiba which you must visit in Tunis. Only problem is due to security situation the church was closed.

A stunning edifice ,ornate painting and finishes. I would have loved to access the interior but it was closed each time I went past. The history of the cathedral was interesting-I was unaware that there had been a Catholic presence in Tunis nor that there is still a Bishop who presides over the area. I hope it remains well maintained... More

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.
