Reasons for trip

This doesn’t feature in the guide books and we only discovered it as we saw it marked on a map of Tunis on the street behind the Roman Catholic Cathedral of St Vincent de Paul. We set off to find it. It is set back off the road in its own grounds behind a locked gate. We don’t think it gets many visitors. Fortunately a woman in the office next to the cathedral saw us and came to unlock the gate.

The outside is very plain with a narrow blue and gold decorative frieze round the window above the door. Inside it is a large pleasant building giving the impression of a lot of space. The walls are painted white with pale golden wood carvings around the walls. The tops of the windows and arches are decorated by a narrow painted frieze in reds and whites. There is a pale gold wooden balcony around three sides of the nave and pale wood rows of seats on the side walls with red cushions. There are similar chairs for the dignitaries in front of the iconostasis. Above are glass chandeliers.

The iconostasis is a darker wood and has two paintings on either side of the central door with the all seeing Eye of God above. There is a small icon on a small display stand in the nave with flowers round it. There is a large icon of St George, and a smaller beautiful one of the Virgin and child.There are paintings of saints on the walls.

We liked the building and it was well worth finding.
