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

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.

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.
