Ouagadougou is not so many things to see. This cathedral is nothing special but african taste as brown color and a lot of birds inside. If you have time. ワガドゥグには目立った観光場所が無いので時間と気力があれば行くと良いと思います。土色の外観、中は鳥が飛び交っており、アフリカっぽさを少し感じました。

The cathedral is pretty interesting from the outside... The inside is nothing special, so I would recommend walking around it and enjoying the scenery... Not much to see inside.

The Cathedral is centrally located in a walled courtyard and is easy to visit if you're exploring Ouaga. An impressive construction dated 1934 and an opportunity to escape the hustle of the city if you'd like to.

Interesting building for Ouaga, which doesn't have much in the way of interesting buildings, but nothing one needs to go out of one's way to visit.

I was not impressed with this particular location because it covered with dust and at a busy commercial area. It's difficult to enjoy the view with all that noise from cars and motorbikes.
