    An impressive Chruch, yet simple.
    It’s hard not to miss. On tour of old Roman ruins this beautiful building is just next door. My local driver proudly tells me “it’s a Catholic chruch, in Tunisa we ok with all religions “ . This is a beautiful and impressive but strangle simply building. Unfortunately it was shut when arrived and was therefore unable to visit inside. The calming atmosphere was a little spoilt by the local stall owners interrupting my driver and I with a script which ended in “come see my shop”.

    Gave me a glimp of hope as I was walking towards this attraction!
    I took the train from Sidi Bou Said to Carthage Hannibal Station, about 3 stops away. The walk from the Train Station was long and uphill. I was ready to give up when I saw the roofs of this church. There are steps still under construction that I took to reach it. Currently, it is closed for renovation. It is huge and beautiful, took several pictures here before going to the Ticket Office to buy the ticket for the Archeological Sites.

    Try to find out if the cathedral is open when you’re there.
    We were very surprised to see that the cathedral was open when we visited and our guide was surprised as well. There was a very knowledgeable on-site guide inside. This is not a very old bldg and only dates from the 1880’s. It is decorated in a faux Arab kind of way and is strikingly pretty inside.

Since the Carthage National Museum was closed, we did not have the chance to see the collection of objects found on the site. However, we went to visit the Acropolium, which is the old Saint Louis Cathedral. Since 1993, the cathedral is no longer used for worship, but instead, it serves for a series of cultural events such as concerts and festivals. When we entered inside the cathedral, a wedding was in preparation but it did not interfere with our visit. We were able to admire its singular architecture following a Byzantine-Moorish style featuring stained glass, azure blue painted wall, and sculpted arabesques. It did not take us that long to do the tour, we were done in less than 10 minutes. Visit my Instagram (kelledstyle) and blog for more info and pictures ;-)

The outlook is grand but inside, not a functioning cathedral. Visitor is required to pay 6 Dina to enter but honestly, nothing special to see.

Lovely place and so peaceful. The church is very well maintained and must be visited. If you get a chance to attend an event, it is even better. Really worth a visit.

This 19th century, now “desacralised” cathedral, was meant to dominate Carthage. But what it does is spoil the Carthage Byrsa site with its unique ancient features from the Punic birth of a civilisation. It just should not be there. It’s design is kitsch too.

Worth a stop if you are visiting Carthage. Well looked after inside. The exterior is somewhat different. Little is provided in terms of information.

Our tour took us here, to the big Catholic church up on the hill overlooking the harbor. There were a lot of vendors around selling things. It is big, but not at all pretty and does not appear to be in good shape.
