Kumbo Cathedral, Kumbo

#6 of 8 in Things to do in Northwest Region
Kumbo Cathedral represents the town's main Catholic house of worship and is visible from any point in town, as it sits atop a square hill. Built in the mid-20th century, the church is often visited because it offers trilingual masses in English, French, and the local Lamnso language. Many visitors note its unusual architecture--the construction was done with only limestone bricks in the Gothic Revival style reminiscent of 13th-century European cathedrals.
