Its a beautiful historical cathedral used mostly for art exhibitions and opera shows and musicals....if you stop by Tunis it would be interesting to have a look on it also into the Roman ruines and if you stop by for few days check the cultural agenda....

Its in the museum site and included on the ten dinar ticket. It looks grand but we could not get inside due to renovations but it looked like it had nice stained glass windows.

This is the oldest church in North Africa. Well, this is no longer a church. But it has all what was there before - the altars, original decorations, and the spirit. In fact I was very surprised how well preserved is this church (not only the building). In my opinion this is one of three main attractions in Carthage. It... More

We went post terrorist attacks so it was very quiet - great for taking pictures. Beautiful building. A must see. We went with a tour guide.

The cathedral, is no longer used as a religious place and is known as the Acropolium. Similar to the Acropolis of Athene, this one is the one of Carthage, it was built on the remains of the ancient temple of Eshmoum the god of healing, it is still possible to see the remains of that temple beneath. Overall, the place... More

Attended worship on Sunday morning. The liturgy is in French. The congregation is composed primarily of francophone Sub-Saharan Africans who sing in beautiful four part harmony that reverberates through the Cathedral. Like being in heaven.

Dont miss to visit this place if you are close to Carthage. There is a small entrance fee of 3,00 Euro, and you have to tip the guy who will take you on the roof of the cathedral. This cathedral is not longer used as church. The interior is a great combination of different styles from arabic, bizantine, european, with... More
