Paroquia Santo Antonio, Maputo

#1 of 18 in Historic Sites in Mozambique
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.
