Cathedral of St Vincent de Paul Tips (6)

The Cathedral of Saint Vincent and Paul

The imposing Cathedral of St. Vincent de Paul, built in 1882 by the French, is situated in the Avenue Habib Bourguiba. It is, as far as I know, the only catholic church in the town of Tunis. The front facade is decorated with gold Christ and trumpeting angels.
The other sources, however, says it is dedicated to Louis IX, king of France and saint who in 1270 besieged Tunis in vain.

Cathedral of St Vincent de Paul

This large cathedral is located near the Medina in Place de L'Independance at the western end of Avenue Habib Bourguiba. It is the main Roman Catholic church in Tunis and is named in honour of Saint Vincent de Paul, a priest sold into slavery in Tunis, who after being freed took an interest in helping Christian slaves in the area. The church was built in 1882 in a mixture of styles, including Moorish, Gothic, and Byzantine.

St. Vincent de Paul Cathedral

Borrowing from almost every architectural current of its time, the St. Vincent de Paul Cathedral is a rather unique-looking church. Its location across the street from the French Embassy is no coincidence, as the French were loath to go very far from their stronghold in the capital of their protectorate. The twin towers are spectacular when the sky is clear and blue.

The doors are usually open on Sunday mornings. However, the interior looks empty, especially when compared to the extravagant exterior: there are still objects of religious art to be seen, but clearly the cathedral's budget has dwindled the same way as its number of followers ever since Tunisia claimed its independance from France in 1956.
