St Joseph's Cathedral, Neiafu
(4.2/5 based on 25 reviews on the web)
It's hard to miss the colonial-style whitewashed facade of St Joseph's Cathedral peering over treetops onto the nearby harbor. The Catholic church's striking yet unpretentious exterior welcomes visitors, and while the interior may seem understated, the service here is anything but. Locals gather in their Sunday best to attend mass and listen to choir belt out beautiful harmonies. You're welcome to visit during non-service times, as well. Look for a small section in the back of the cathedral, where you can look inside. Add St Joseph's Cathedral and other attractions to your Neiafu trip itinerary using our Neiafu trip generator.

  • nice church on top of the hill. you cant miss it! It is really nice to sit on the steps and listen to singing from inside 
  • the church is at the highest point of Neiafu. Can see the church anywhere. A nice place to visit even not a Christian. I missed the Sunday mass, will visit next time. 
  • Sunday mass is well worth the experience, as the harmonizing of the singing is superb, makes it a special visit.
