Consecrated in 1949, the Basilique St. Anne is a beautiful church and a reminder of French colonialism.

The architecture is really nice and unusual for this country. The interior is very interesting. I really liked the arches.

Beautiful church, definitely worth a visit. Nice green outdoor area where people read and relax. Pleasant place for a quick stop.

Brazzaville is a pretty cool city, this cathedral is quite beautiful, with a very special architecture that makes it different, more beautiful on the outside than inside, although it is worth a visit.

I did not have a chance to go inside, but I did enjoy looking at it from the outside; it has a beautiful green roof and a nice garden where you can sit and enjoy the scene.

This beautiful Bascilica in central Brazzaville is a great piece of architecture. It has unique green tiles that add a special beauty to the building. There is plenty of parking if you chose to drive as the area where it is located can be busy...More

We were asked to pay an unnecessary entry fee to access the church, on the excuse that we could have gone to the rooftop. Not only was the guide totally unprepared about any possible historical hints to be provided, but he also lied about the...More
