“A disappointment.”

Cathedral of St. Vincent de Paul
Ranked #4 of 104 things to do in Tunis
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed December 19, 2013

Perhaps it is unfair to expect that a Christian place of worship in a mainly Muslim country should be spectacular. It is very reassuring to see it as an example of the general religious tolerance displayed in Tunisia. However as an example of architectural merit it falls very short of the splendid mosques to be seen everywhere in this splendid country.

beautiful both from outside and inside - the cathedral is a nice oasis in the centre of the heat of Tunis. Come inside, whether to pray or just to escape from the city noise for a moment!

It is a nice place to be quiet and think. It is located in the Habib Bou Rkeba street (Tunis downtown).
It is recommended - entrance is for free

In the center of Medina, you find this wonderful cathedral with amazing paintings and wonderful altar. Worth the visit!

This great cathedral is right downtown, on one of the busiest streets in the city. It's architecture is very different from the rest of the city, and it stands out as a beautiful monument. This inside is magnificent, and there is a stunning gold replica of the cathedral which is well worth the visit.
