  • My husband and I were married there, and it was the best decision I every made. Other than the occasional brawls, it is a vibrant church and the heart of the city. Do not bring any suspicious...

  • Ancient colonial religious edifice. Very beautiful. Angelic choruses were heard inside when we visited.
  • Basic place to stay. Church services will wake you up early.
  • The coronation place of: Jean-Bédel Bokassa, the lunatic of all lunatics and the first "emperor" of Africa, who unfortunately made Central Africa world famous. This place commemorates a dictator who flew in 30 white horses, 1.5 tons of military medals, 20,000 bottles of champagne and a golden carriage from Paris for his coronation ceremony. This place should always be there as a warning and reminder for the people of this terrible dictator
