I visited the cathedral 10 minutes before closing time. The moment I stepped inside it took my breath away. My first instinct was to take a video and I'm so glad I did! Totally beautiful inside and well worth visiting if you are a lover...More

This 19th century, now “desacralised” cathedral, was meant to dominate Carthage. But what it does is spoil the Carthage Byrsa site with its unique ancient features from the Punic birth of a civilisation. It just should not be there. It’s design is kitsch too.

Wouldn`t it have been better if the archaeologists had been allowed to excavate the whole site rather than allow French colonial rulers to erect this now redundant Cathedral? While on a stunning site (the views around are fantastic) the comment by Prince Charles about a...More

You pay an extra 5 dinar to go inside this but they have used the money well on renovations. It’s lovely inside, beautiful stained glass windows and done very old wall artwork.

Not sure why someone would visit this cathedral, especially those who've been in a cathedral before. You cannot go up to the top for pictures, it's locked. Be advised that you pay extra for entry, not included in museum & arch. site ticket.

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.
