Paroquia Santo Antonio, Maputo

#1 of 18 in Historic Sites in Mozambique
Religious Site · Tourist Spot
Paroquia Santo Antonio draws tourists with its modern architecture and atmospheric interior. The Portuguese architect Cavreiro Nuno Lopes designed this Catholic church in the early 1960s. Its futuristic conical shape is suggestive of an inverted flower or a spinning carousel, though it also reminds many visitors of a lemon juicer. Try to visit during the day to see the intriguing play of light in the interior created by stained-glass windows covering the side openings and the central dome. You can plan Maputo trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.
