An architectural gem

Charged with memory, Saint Vincent Cathedral, in neo-Romanesque style, like all constructions of this period, is 75 m long and 32 m wide. On the facade there is a blind arcade and the mosaic of Christ Pantocrator. Dominating this arcature is the representation of the Eternal Father by the sculptor Figlia. The construction material is marble from Djebel-Oust, an ancient Roman quarry that the architect put back into operation. Two massive bell towers, crowned with tiara-shaped domes and topped with the cross, overlook the avenue.

The foundation is made up of an imposing mass of 2,133 beams from a eucalyptus forest. We reached the rock at an average depth of 15 m, but in some places we had to go down to 23 m
