  • Very interesting place. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the southern village of Nuku Hiva
  • A definite must see! The woodwork is jaw dropping.
  • Beautiful carved figures depicting the Stations of the Cross in a shady, airy cruciform cathedral. So perfect for the environment of Nuku Hiva, which is in Polynesie Francaise
  • Beautiful and unique cathedral to walk around. Definitely worth a visit if you're here.
  • A modern airy cathedral in a lovely garden setting!
