  • Brilliant of masks and everything hardly any tourists very photogenic had a nice muslims there good welcoming  more »
  • Well located, not far from the Basilica, this religious building is for me an architectural masterpiece. Well disposed and ideally located to see it by all those who pass in Yamoussoukro. Big enough. But too bad the roads are damaged in the capital.
