Admire the Neo-Gothic architecture of Catedral de Santa Isabel. Dominating its surroundings with twin 40 m (131 ft) spires, this capacious church serves as the seat of the Archdiocese of Malabo. Built from 1897-1916 by the Spaniards, the cathedral features a high vaulted ceiling with excellent acoustics. If visiting during service, you'll have the chance to hear the choir. Take a break at the fountain outside the cathedral--also a popular spot for local children to play soccer.
