Cathedral Our Lady of the Rosary was built in the 1920s in Asmara, the capital of what was then Italian Eritrea. The Lombard Romanesque-style building was a response to the need for a big cathedral for the growing Italian population which immigrated to Eritrea. In the church, there is a board of gratitude to the main donors during the construction, which also bears the name of the then Italian dictator Mussolini. Church bells were cast from Austro-Hungarian cannons seized after the First World War. You can discover many more interesting facts on the spot!
