St Joseph Cathedral

Dar es Salaam

This spired, Gothic-style, Roman Catholic cathedral was built at the turn of the 19th century by German missionaries. In addition to the striking stained-glass windows behind the main altar (best viewed late in the afternoon), it still contains many of the original German inscriptions and artwork, including the carved relief above the main altar.

Stop by any Sunday morning to see the standing-room-only overflow from the services and hear the singing.
