Over 130 years old and now closed for renovation. Expected to be re-built as it was by the French more than 130 years back but need to wait for at least 2 years!

The cathedral is very beautiful and unique. As of July, its been fenced off for restoration which will last 2 years. The outside is beautiful and showing signs of repair with rusted gutters, etc. Will visit when its restored.

Not much to say, could not go inside, nice to see and admire, just another part of the city's history.

There are fences installed around the church for some construction. You can not get inside or even outside close to a red brick wall. We don't know how long will take.

All we saw was the outside and that was nice to see. But we were disappointed that the building is under repair and we could not get close or go inside. It is right across from the Central Post Office, which is a must see...More

When we went here it was under renovation so you could only take a picture on the outside. The picture didn't turn our great though because half of the building was closed. It is right across the Post Office which was great.

I was disappointed that such a tourist attraction was in such poor condition externally. It was a shame that I was not able to go when it was open (if it is open). Great place for locals to meet and a good point of reference...More
