Great to pop into if its open. both times it was closed when we went past. Third time it was open. it is not open all hours, but different times of the day. Historic building built by france to remember the original.

As it is just beside the post office wandered over to have a look, was very disappointed it was closed and we were unable to look inside. Good for a photo but l feel that's all

Our guide was worried that I wouldn't be able to get in wearing a tank top (it was ok so may depend on guards). Some interesting history behind the plaques. Some of the stained glass panels still have bullet holes. Poignant and a must see if you love churches.

Beautiful church and iconic symbol of the city. Must check out if you're in town and conveniently located next to the post office, another must see building. I've attended services here and an interesting experience. In my opinion, the outside of the building is prettier than the interior.

This is worth a quick look on the city tourist trail, but do not expect it to be a replica of what is to be found in Paris.

A lovely sight! Always nice to see brilliant architecture. Can be busy around the area but if your nearby it's definitely worth a look

A georgious building with some interesting architecture and surrounds. Its right in the middle of other great attractions like the Independance Palace and Post Office so well worth a visit.

This is a beautiful old Cathedral. The inside is just gorgeous and so is the outside. You will find it across the street from the Post Office, so you can visit both on the same day. A very beautiful statue of our Mother Mary out front in a beautiful garden that you can take pictures in.

Red brick with no flying buttresses and much smaller but worth a visit along with the post office in the same square.
