Cathedrale du Souvenir Africain de Dakar Reviews
A nice, quiet and simple place designed for praying. Have a white good looking from outside. Located in the middle of Dakar, and nearby lot of nice restaurants and cafes and there's a Lebanese one on.... more »
This Catholic Church is quite understated. A beautiful almost Art Deco exterior and a quiet simple interior. Worth a quick visit more »
Bright, this place of worship is also spacious the only downside is the dust and noise from outside
Is a remarkable site especially for a Catholic. More than the beauty of the Church and of your decoration, what impresses are the few people who pray with intensity to our Lady. A demonstration of faith amazing and inspiring. Mass times are: Monday to Friday every day at 7:00 or 18:30; Saturday at 19:00; Sunday 7:30, 9:00 (transmitted via radio) and 10:30.
