  • A cathedral without life, it would deserve much better, a large parking lot in laterite, surrounds buildings of the same style, schools .....;

  • Designed by Monsignor Thévenoud, the first stone was laid in 1934 and the building completed in 1936. This church is the main one in the city of Ouagadougou. It is accessed by the Avenue Monsignor Thévenoud which runs from the Rond Point des Cinéastes to the Cathedral. It is good to visit this place during Mass hours.
