Admire the complex Romanesque and Gothic facade of Cattedrale di Asmara. Built in 1922 by the Italian colonial government, this brick and stone edifice features a 52 m (170 ft) belfry clock tower and a number of ornate pinnacles. Step inside to see the ornately decorated interior with arches and chandeliers, and the play of light coming from round side-windows and the main cupola. The building serves as the seat of the Eritrean Archeparchy of Asmara.

  • Very nice cathedral in center of Asmara. Misa is on Tigrinya and Italian language. Must visit in Asmara  more »
  • Can't miss this one if you´re in Asmara. In a very good shape compared to other buildings in Asmara. I think the clock tower was the most impressive. Like Big Ben.  more »
