Must see as it it is centrally located and a quick see. Great way to experience some of Tunis' limited religious diversity.

well, one could fairly say it's just another church, what is true. Since I'm not an expert on the subject (well its romain) it's much more about to find it in the center of the city with in good shape.

This church is almost always open. Just go there without asking guards. They are very kind and helpful. The church is huge and very beautiful. There is not much light inside, thus photographing is a tricky part. If you are not a photographer, you can just enjoy the tranquility of the place.

The cathedral is a footprint of the Christian civilization in Tunis. Its strategic location in the Habib Bourguiba street exposes to the diversity of the tunisian historical background centuries ago.

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.
