Lagos is a small town, so are it’s churches. This one is open only for a rather short period of time and has not much to offer apart from obvious, unless one comes here to pray, then it’s a different story.

A small church only used for special occasions. It has an historical meaning for Lagos going back to the earthquake and an Irish Sea captain if my memory serves me well but the lady we met there explained everything patiently in English for us

A beautiful old church which is accessed through a very interesting museum. Everything in here is gold but because the church is so dark, it is hard to get the full effect.

This Church seems to stay closed except for Masses. In fact it is gated and locked in my experience. We attended 10am Mass there, or least we attempted to. Within minutes of arriving I felt that the Church was suffocatingly warm. I left to get...More

Closed when I arrived but the man sitting around the side kindly unlocked the door. Inside you walk the sacristy which is a mini museum and then enter the church which is very dark. I never use flash in churches out of respect even when...More

The church is entered via a small museum which is quite interesting with local artifacts etc. Nominal entrance fee. The church (although gold) is not that well lit and would benefit from more lighting to really make the gold shine. Wonderful carvings etc and worth...More
