Basilica of St. Anne A fabulous example of religious architecture which represents one of the most important religious monuments of Central Africa by presenting a combination of traditional techniques and innovations in Europe, a union that has made the basilica formidable work. Covered with green tiles, the basilica was built in 1946, whose construction works, however, were interrupted in 1951, and owes its construction to the idea of the bishop of Brazzaville, Biéchy Paul, who sees the need to build a place of worship bringing together Christians of the two districts of the capital, and today it is a destination not to be missed for those who go on holiday in Brazzaville.

Congo Arts Gallery

The Galerie Konongo Specialised in wood carving, the Galerie Konongo operates a workshop managed by one of Congo’s first carvers, the artists Konongo supported by his sons involved in the same trade. Founded in 1960, the Galerie Konongo has been greatly transformed both in the progress it has made so far and in the quality of its work of art, lending it a high artistic dimension. The “Konongo” carvings are the symbol of a tradition and genius handed over from generation to generation; it is quality trade mark. Like every creative work, carvings bearing the “Konongo” label have been selling abroad for over three decades and have also gone round the world. The gallery is one of its kind by virtue of its works of art and the traditional and contemporary carvings crafted with artistic finesse. The beauty of its exhibitions is a source of attraction for thousands of admirers.
