One of the few really place that it`s worth to see in Abidjan (except of some markets). Especially the huge glass windows with incredible picture. Almost only clean place in Abidjan for tourists.

I am usually not interested in visiting churches.. but this one was very interesting for its murals.. they are meaningful and they talk not only about the story in the bible, but mostly about local story and the whey they were doutrined (my interpretation)

I enjoyed the very participative mass and the enthusiastic and welcoming crowd. Abidjan is a city of contrasts: poverty and modernity are side by side.

During the day time, the building looks stark from the outside, but step inside to see the floor-to-ceiling stained glass murals burst with color and life. The modern, African style is beautiful and so different than most cathedral windows.

Abidjan's cathedral is Worth a visit. The architecture of the building is unique, and the views it offers over the lagoon are very good. You can visit the interior and walk in the gardens and see the lagoon. The interior of the cathedral is not...More

It is free but they say you need a guide and have to pay. We went with a local and declined the "service" and just went in.
