It was really awesome to visit such a well maintained cathedral in Africa this shows dedication and maintenance of that specific crew which was handling the AFFAIRS.

When you get down here, you might just feel you are in some European country, so is the design and structure of this building. I would say it is a must visit, if you are planning to visit Cote d'Ivoire.

Amazing place. A must visit in Abidjan. Had very little time to explore properly as I was delayed but whatever I could see was very nice. The structure itself is imposing.

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.
