The cathedral was very nice, the exterior grounds and surrounding properties are in need of major renovation, very dirty, lots of garbage through out the city.

A place to visit, to photograph and pray (if one is Christian). Or you can sit and meditate... There is not much more to tell you, as this is just a Cathedral, the only one in Maputo, Mozambique.

This cathedral is a great landmark. If you are going to meet someone in Maputo and wonder how you might locate them, meeting them on the steps of this prominent cathedral would be a convenient location. Aside from that, the cathedral to me, does not...More

Cathedral of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception is a striking prominent landmark in Independence Square. The cathedral has a tall single spire.

What's interesting about this cathedral is its architecture and history. It was built during the Portugese rule in Mozambique yet its style does not reflect the grand sweeping cathedral of Europe. It is a bit of a poor relation and is interesting because of that.

A cathedral like countless others. Really nothing special. Modern and pretty blah on the inside. Some murals, and pictures of the Pope’s visit inside.

The cathedral was built in 1944 that looks like Art Deco but yet is not. The church is located on Independence Square. Well worth a visit

I hate to sound dismissive, but you have to lower your expectations when visiting Mozambique. This cathedral is nice based upon the surroundings, but is by no means a worldly treasure or a top 250 cathedral in the world. It might not even be top...More

Considering it was built in mid 1940s, the design must have been phenomenal during those days. The glass murals/paintings are nice. The cathedral needs some maintenance from inside towards ceilings at some places. Nice place to click some pictures
