Notre Dame Cathedral, Papeete
(3/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
Enter a bright, warm, and welcoming church at Notre Dame Cathedral, whose late 19th-century structure represents one of the last remaining examples of early colonial architecture in Papeete. With its yellow exterior and red steeple, the gentle palette of colors blends in with the locale and the atmosphere of the town. Inside, the art and design represent both European and indigenous sensibilities, creating a synthesis that feels contemporary and engaging. You're encouraged to go in and look around, but do remember that it still functions as a place of worship.
