It was designed in 1930 by Designed by the French architect Paul Tournon in a neo-gothic style, when Morocco was still under the rule of Catholic France. The cathedral though is lying neglected for quiet for sometime now offers a magnificent view of the city of Casablanca. The concrete stairs behind the Cathedral wall looks like an old staircase of a haunted mansion but is quiet safe to climb, if one is careful enough. The view of the buttresses of the cathedral along with the short walk along the walls at the top can be adrenaline pumping as well as memorable.

Entry: Though there are no entry fees, however the guards do request for donations of 20 dirhams to help in recovering and reconstructing the damage to the structure

Opening Times: Open all the time but it is best to avoid going after sunset as poor lightening can cause accidents on the staircase and the hour-long guided tours are held at the following times: Saturday-Thursday: 09:00 am, 10:00 am, 11:00 am and 02:00 pm, Fri 09:00 am and 02:00 pm.

Address: Boulevard Sour Djedid, Casablanca, Morocco

How to Reach: The nearest station is Station Marché central at Boulevard Mohammed V which is just a 20 minutes’ walk away from the cathedral. "
