ODD BUT NICE
Feb 2020
Not too far to walk from the cruise port, the Cathedral looks a little shabby from the outside and but pleasant on the inside. In truth architecturally it’s a bit odd and it’s somewhat understated. Still it has a tranquil and sedate atmosphere.

We went to have a look and, although it is pretty enough on the outside, we couldn't get in.So do check if it matters to you to visit.

Closed doors
Jan 2020
Tight streets, found one parking spot. The doors of the cathedral were closed -it was Friday January 10 at 1:00pm. Walked around the building, nothing to see really. Walked to the shore of the water/harbor, and went back to our car. Not worth the trip in the busy and tight city.

The attractive yellow Cathedral
Feb 2019
Cathedral Saint Pierre Saint Paul is painted in yellow, with some white and some red. There are 6 statues outside.

Once we enter, we can see how high this is.

There is a lot of light in the Cathedral.

Although there was no priests, there were a lot of people in the Cathedral.

There were flowers at the altar.

What was unique, they had the whole history of this Cathedral.

This is truly worthwhile to see!

Simply beautiful!
Jul 2018
We were able to view the inside of this lovely cathedral as part of our sailboat tour. It was simple, but beautiful - with monuments to Joan de Arc - as well as Saint Paul. Adjacent to the marketplace in Place de l"Eglise. Well worth a visit...

Impressive outside and tower
Jan 2018 • Couples
Brightly coloured yellow outside and clock tower, which can be seen from a distance. Not far from Place de la Victoire. We entered before 12, but we found it closed dead on 12! Interesting metal girder design inside, but no stain glass to see.

Skip the beach on a Sunday morning - go to the Sunday High Mass at the cathedral (9:30 am.) You won't be disappointed.

An understated place of quiet
Nov 2017 • Couples
If you're looking for a true Gothic style cathedral à la Nôtre Dame, you'll be disappointed by this church. But if you are looking for a serene focal point of faith in the somewhat chaotic environs of Pointe-à-Pitre, this Catholic cathedral is a worthy visit. During our morning in PTP, we stopped here to admire the architecture and have a moment of peace during our week in Guadeloupe. The outside of the church is a sunny yellow-and-white, with a facade that reminded me of some of the basilicas in Paris. Statues of St. Paul and Peter flank the entrance, with statues of the Four Evangelists (Gospel writers) below.

The interior of the building is notable by the iron armature and beams, which was installed to prevent further earthquake damage. As an architect, I found this to be quite interesting, but it did add a more industrial aesthetic to the place. There aren't any stained glass windows here, but many etchings depicting the life of Jesus mounted on columns. The alter area has an impressive-looking structure that looked like a sepulcher, possibly housing relics, with what looked like a locally made wooden crucifix in front.

On either side of the alter are chapels dedicated to St. Anthony and St. Joseph (one), and the Virgin Mary (the other). Mary seems particularly venerated, as her chapel was full of flowers (likely bought from the women selling them in the plaza outside).

The building could all around use a new coat of paint and repairs. But the peaceful atmosphere was quite welcome.
