We enjoyed visiting if you're into seeing church architecture and the like. Probably won't go again, but worth seeing once!

Beautiful construction and church. Yard is so beautiful, just so proud to see such place in Africa. Great place to tour, they have a area in the yard where you can pray in the garden.

Visually unique but not something you need to see, BUT there were kids inside singing and I thought that was more interesting

Hard to miss if you're downtown or on the Croisette. Well worth a visit inside. The stained glass is beautiful and the gardens are peaceful and well maintained.

I enjoyed the beautiful stained glass depicting the African savannah and elephants, which is quite unique! It's worth stopping by if you happen to be in Abidjan.

Not sure why it has been categorized as the # 1 attraction in Abidjan? I would only recommend it if you have never seen a church or specifically want to visit for religious purposes. Architecturally, aesthetically there is nothing in there that warrants a visit.

St Paul's Cathedral is one of the most stately places in Abidjan, Plateau. For Catholics and others, get a trip

It is free but they say you need a guide and have to pay. We went with a local and declined the "service" and just went in.
