St. Paul Cathedral

The Cathedral of St.Paul is an innovative structure created and designed by Italian architect Aldo Spirit. This cathedral is unlike any other regular ones, as one can't really recognize that this is a religious place from its outside. But inside, the stained glass tableaux remind you of the basilica in Yamoussoukro.

Biblical stories have been depicted inside the cathedral, such as the story of God blinding St Paul when he was traveling to Damascus or the storm on Lake Galilee. After the basilica in Yamoussoukro, this is the most popular religious attraction on Ivory Coast.
