Built by Italian in the 30s, it is one of the places not to be missed in Asmara. Try to there when it is open, fo the interesting inside, but even if you only walk along the large square you'll have an unforgettable experience of religious and interconfessional architecture

A worthwhile destination during a stroll in central downtown Asmara that is beautiful at any time during the day. Very spacious piazza.
