Trip Planner: South Pacific / French Polynesia / Society Islands / Tahiti / Papeete / Notre Dame Cathedral
Enter a bright, warm, and welcoming church at Notre Dame Cathedral, whose late 19th-century structure represents one of the last remaining examples of early colonial architecture in Papeete. With its yellow exterior and red steeple, the gentle palette of colors blends in with the locale and the atmosphere of the town. Inside, the art and design represent both European and indigenous sensibilities, creating a synthesis that feels contemporary and engaging. You're encouraged to go in and look around, but do remember that it still functions as a place of worship.

Notre Dame Cathedral reviews
Its not the most amazing and stunning cathedral I've ever seen, but its really cute and quaint. The architectural design is very simple, and the dominant yellow color makes it stick out! more »
Seems small for a cathedral. Very well kept building for it's age. I think it was built in the late 1800's. Beautiful stained glass. more »
