05/02: Plus de Sacre Coeur

Back in May of 2013 I spent a few weeks in Algeria and got to explore Algiers before flying home. Yesterday I showed a few photographs of the Sacred Heart Cathedral. Here are the photographs I took from the interior. Apologies for the low quality. The structure and textures are amazing. I don’t know if any functions still take place in the church (daily mass is held in a chapel in the basement) but it truly is an inspired work of brutalism.
