St. Augustin Cathedral, Annaba

St. Augustin Cathedral, Annaba

Annaba is home to St. Augustin, (354-430AD), one of the 'fathers' of early Christianity. The basilica was built in 1881 on a site formerly dedicated to the Phoenician god Baal-Hammon and the equivalent of Saturn to the Romans. Mass is still celebrated Friday and Sunday mornings.
