Cathedral of the Sacred Heart of Algiers, Algeria

Observe the quite peculiar architecture of Sacred Heart Cathedral, the main cathedral of the Archdiocese of Algiers. What makes this 1963 structure stand out, both literally and figuratively, is its central tower rising above the pews, letting in natural light. Enter the cathedral for a closer look at the interior, where smaller stained glass windows behind the altar offset the mostly bare walls. Wander around, or attend a service if you wish.
