Fodor's Review

This is the center of the Catholic community in Pape'ete, as well as a quiet and cool retreat from the hot and sticky city. Built in 1875 and restored in 1987, this buttercup-yellow church with a red roof and high steeple sits pretty in its own square just a block behind the market. The altar is always decorated with beautiful tropical flower arrangements and the church fills with light from a dozen stained-glass windows. Choirs sing in the upstairs area under a pitched timber ceiling adorned with cast-iron chandeliers.
