The cathedral is one of the main attractions of the capital. It was built several decades ago. It looks fantastic!

We visited while a mass was in progress so could not go in to see the interior and stained glass windows, but the architecture is interesting and worth the visit.

One of the absolutely must see spots in Abidjan! With the form of an elephant and the size of twenty elephants it certainly sticks out in the city.

We enjoyed visiting if you're into seeing church architecture and the like. Probably won't go again, but worth seeing once!

Beautiful construction and church. Yard is so beautiful, just so proud to see such place in Africa. Great place to tour, they have a area in the yard where you can pray in the garden.

ONE - A rarity in CI but please, put some notices up clearly, in French and or English stating who can visit, when and how. It was embarrassing because walked in and someone at the entrance asked if we wanted a guide, we said not...More

Visually unique but not something you need to see, BUT there were kids inside singing and I thought that was more interesting

Hard to miss if you're downtown or on the Croisette. Well worth a visit inside. The stained glass is beautiful and the gardens are peaceful and well maintained.

I enjoyed the beautiful stained glass depicting the African savannah and elephants, which is quite unique! It's worth stopping by if you happen to be in Abidjan.

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.
