Catedral de Santa Isabel, Malabo

Admire the Neo-Gothic architecture of Catedral de Santa Isabel. Dominating its surroundings with twin 40 m (131 ft) spires, this capacious church serves as the seat of the Archdiocese of Malabo. Built from 1897-1916 by the Spaniards, the cathedral features a high vaulted ceiling with excellent acoustics. If visiting during service, you'll have the chance to hear the choir. Take a break at the fountain outside the cathedral--also a popular spot for local children to play soccer.

  • I Love it
  • Beautiful sight
  • Beautiful!!!!!
  • Nice religious building very close to the center of Malabo. Spanish heritage in both architecture and religion. If you go to Malabo, the capital of the Republic of Equatorial Guinea, you can't miss it. In front is the Independence Square which has a fountain in the center and other buildings of interest in its surroundings, such as a hotel and the presidential building. From here you can observe the Port of Malabo with all its activity. Going down to the port you can visit some curves or caverns that the Spaniards used to keep the slaves and then ship them to the places where they were forced to work

  • After the important fire that just happened yesterday, I hope that everything that was lost will be repaired and recovered. I hope one day I can visit her.
