“Don't bother...”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013 via mobile

I don't think this is interesting at all. It's just a church and not a very notable one at that. It seems that it is located near mosques maybe that's why people are rating it high. But for me it held little interest.

“Beautiful, interesting church”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

The church is very beautiful, elegant, in a very awesome area.
The museum is in a building next to the church itself. It is very cool, interesting, organized, but what I don't like is the idea of a church having a LL 5000 price just to go see a small museum.
Photography is not allowed in the church, but allowed in the museum.

“Beautiful Tableaux”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

Tucked to the side of the main thoroughfare this cathedral is a delight. The tableaux and fresco's all look to have been newly painted but have an ancient style about them.
Photography is not allowed in the cathedral.

“Nice church and a museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013

You can see the history of the region in this church. It is worth the visit and is located in a nice area near the parliament. You should visit the museum in the lower part.
