It's a little different from other cathedrals, but still beautiful inside. You're able to climb the stairs to the upper level balcony. Separate entry fee from the ruins, but reasonable and still worth a visit.

nice place to visit as a confirmation for the multi-heritage of Tunisia a guided tour is the best way for the visitor to understand the history

Located just outside of the Carthage Museum, this is a simple cathedral that bears ducking into. The colors and architecture are gorgeous.

We really wanted to get off, but our tour guide just let us take photos from the bus. Lots of police (I guess, to minimize attacks), it's perched on a small hill and isolated. The church had an Arab motif, similar to churches in Morocco.

Not easy to gain access and the coffee shop owner hits you up for 5TND, but worth the look inside to see what the grandeur of days past was like.

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.

Was on sighting area of Catharge and stopped to see cathedral. It's worth seeing the exterior and the huge statue of a man in entrance area but that's it. Pesky vendors outside. Keep your taxi do you can drive away.
