The history of New Caledonia is heavily tied up with the activities of European missionaries so visiting this cathedral is central to learning about their role. Its open and spacious, built by convicts (mostly), and close to the city centre so easy to get to.

Such an amazing Architecture and view from above is also amazing! This is a place that needs to be seen and see the statue of Joan of Arc.

Beautiful old church on the top of the hill (although it's not that steep).
Joan of Arc statue is unusual and some excellent stained glass.
Not very touristy at all and one of the few sights around the city centre really.

No gift shop, no beggars, no people thrusting leaflets into your hands, no tourists (non cruise ship day). It was a really pleasant experience and well worth the short trek up the hill. Not a real tourist attraction as such, but great to see a working Cathedral that just gets on with its own business.

There is a bonus of views out to sea as you exit the main door.

Look inside the church it appears to be relatively plain however just sit and take the place in before walking slowly around to get a closer look at the altar and the side vestibules. We found it to be a very peaceful place. Make sure you see the Joan of Arc statue in the grounds of the church. Worth the walk and the time to visit. You also get a great photo of the church from the street front.

The original architecture of Saint Joseph’s Roman Catholic Cathedral makes it a landmark to visit during your next stay in Noumea, regardless of religious beliefs. The Cathedral is not the most glamorous of Catholic monuments and generally, visits here would require no more than one (1) hour, however it is certainly worth the walk to see this convict built structure. Additionally it is a great vantage point to oversee the city.

We have been to Noumea a number of times now and not one of our favourite places to visit, especially if the ship arrives in a Monday and everywhere is closed.
So, this time we walked up the street to St Jospehs Cathedral and it was a nice quiet place just to have a wander around and read the small amount of information they had regarding it

Not to be missed to have time in prayer and light some candles everywhere walked it from Anse Vata which took us around 45 minutes, a really beautiful walk through Lemon bay and along the coast. I imagine only a ten min bus trip if you prefer not to walk.

Lovely cathedral - don't forget to go in side entrance rather than walk up the steps at front. Behind the cathedral is a beautiful shrine, decorated by locals - quite lovely.

One of Noumea's historical landmarks only 15 minutes walk from the cruise ship. It was built by convicts during colonial times. Under renovation at the moment but managed to get a sneak peek inside. Very beautiful and interesting place to visit and the statue of Joan of Arc proudly stands in the middle of the courtyard. Behind the church lies a small and beautiful cave with the statue of the Virgin Mary and there is a shop which sells many religious items with books in French language.
