Beautiful church in pristine condition, ideal for a quiet reflective moment. This church in the centre of Lagos is open to the public of all faiths & religions so worth a spiritual moment in amongst the hustle & bustle of Lagos.

Beautiful Church for a short visit if you are in the old town of Lagos. You do neem to go to Lagos especially for this.

Smaller church than what one typically visits, but nice from the inside, It feels more real than many other churches for a strange reason. Has some special color glass window. Worth a visit.

Visited in the evening when there was poetry and singing, it was wonderful! Great atmosphere. I am not sure if there is an entrance fee, as I didn't visit during the day.

This is not as elaborate as St. Anthony's nor does it have a museum as part of the admission, but it is a lovely church to see and an antidote of simplicity to the illustrations of St. Antony. I liked both very much.

This small church close to the square does have an interesting ceiling but otherwise very simple interior.

Nice little church just off the square. This is a very normal little church, with a beautiful ceiling and alter with a lovely window which lets in a great deal of light. Nothing ostentatious but these are the churches I like, the ones that are...More
