Neither sorrow nor glory. Place to visit, which you will see if or if walking through the city, is what it is, the cathedral of Lome. You have to be clear at all times that it is Africa for the good and for the rest :)))

We have traveled around Vietnam for more than 3 months.

On our journey from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City, we have experienced so many wonderful things.

This neo gothic building has nothing particular to offer, just a normal plain church building. On the back it has a small garden with a Mary sanctuary. on the side of the church there are some administrarive buildings from the local church organisation.

I just had to see this. We visited the market on a sun and walked past this. Service was still on so we couldn't go in. When I finished at the market, we went back and service was over. I went in and told the men I saw that I wanted to look around and take pictures and they agreed. We did just that and when we finished, they told us there was a grotto behind we could see and we went. Being a former Catholic, I enjoyed visiting the grotto as I sat and prayed for a bit. We didn't go in though. It has a nice unique colour.

Strong red and white colouring that's circled by the Grande Marche, so peace and madness in the same vicinity. Very similar looking to the Cathedral in Kpalime, displaying German colonisation before the French. There is a school next door where we handed out crayons to the little ones. Hard to get good exterior pics as it's so backed up to the market, but the whole building is in a good state and a striking emblem amongst Lome's hustle..

The cathedral is surrounded by the market. You won't be able to take a good shot, because there are people, motorbikes and merchants everywhere... The cathedral was built a century ago by the German colonists.

This church is worth a visit if you're in the market area. It's a place of peace and quiet surrounded by the bustling market right outside. There is a statue of Jesus against the outside fence that is worth a look. The outside of the church is more impressive than the inside, but still worth a quick stop if you are in the area.

Togo has a varied history and continues ti be a place with complicated politics. But before it was a French colony it was a German colony and this church stands as a testament to German occupation and colonial rule in West Africa. It's a pretty but basic church still in operation today with an area around the back that you can climb to get a view of the neighborhood. If you are in the area, and especially if you are German, swing by.

There's a plaque in the church with names and cities in Germany of the german people who helped pay to restore and also build the original church (no local togo people are mentioned) and my husband was surprised to see his little city of Speyer.

I'm not sure, if I were German, I'd be proud of my colonial history, but nevertheless, the Germans I happened to be with loved seeing their countries often overlooked colonial history.

FYI Germany had colonies in 6 modern day African countries: Burundi, Cameroon, Namibia, Rwanda, Tanzania and Togo

This is a rather stylish building in a bustling environment with lovely coloured bricks. Inside some nice simple stained glass windows. Nothing however to merit a long stay.
