Overview of Sacred Heart Cathedral

The cathedral was built in 1930 by the famous French architect Paul Tournon. In 1956, after the independence of Morocco, the temple was converted into a cultural centre.

An interesting fact, the cathedral was built with segments starting from the altar. The original budget was exceeded, so from 1930 to 1952, the building, although a functioning cathedral, where services were held, was unfinished and consisted of an altar and only 3 bays (vertical parts) out of 10.
