Labulle won a competition to design this Cathedral. In 1887 convicts began work and it was blessed on 26 October 1890.
The decorative central light is a replica of one in the Madeleine Church in Paris and was made using one of the first leaves of nickel produced from the mineral New Caledonian has rich reserves of.

Christel from Köln, Germany

Good evening, Frances,
The church looks very impressive inside and out. Inside the church, I like that, photographically, the perspective of the pews to the altar. Also the church windows and the chandeliers look very impressive. Colors, details and collage are excellent. I like it very much. 5 stars ***** Have a nice evening and all the best. Dear greetings Christel
