Check out one of the remaining French-style buildings, La Cathedrale du Sacre Coeur. The imposing, early 20th-century structure boasts a mix of architectural styles, having both Moorish and colonial details. The entrance has several arches leading to the main doors, while the upper part of the wall features several pictures depicting biblical symbols. Two bell towers flank the facade, which represents the first reinforced concrete construction in French colonial territories. Today, the erstwhile cathedral serves as a public library.
