Sacred Heart Cathedral, Suva
The cathedral serves as the headquarters of the Metropolitan Archdiocese of Suva (Archidioecesis suvana), which was created in 1966 by Pope Paul VI by bull "Prophetarum voices". A crypt, completed in 1896, now contains the remains of Archbishop Emeritus Petero Mataca, who was entombed here in 2014. The cathedral is depicted on a Fiji stamp issued in 1979.
If you retrace your steps back to the Ivi Triangle and cross Scott Street, you’ll find Suva’s most distinctive art deco treasure.
