Cathedral of the Holy Family

Church in Tutuila

The exterior of Tafuna’s imposing, snow-white Catholic cathedral is striking, with a space-age bell tower and dissected dome, though a homier beauty lies in its Polynesian-meets-Western artworks including an 'ava-bearing, larger-than-life Samoan Christ, and a nativity featuring a fale as a stable and an 'ava bowl as a manger.
