Basilique de Notre Dame de la Paix de Yamoussoukro

The Basilica of Our Lady of Peace of Yamoussoukro (French: Basilique Notre-Dame de la Paix de Yamoussoukro) is a Roman Catholic minor basilica dedicated to Our Lady of Peace in Yamoussoukro, the administrative capital of Côte d’Ivoire (Ivory Coast). The basilica was constructed between 1985 and 1989 at a cost of US$300 million. The design of the dome and encircled plaza are clearly inspired by[2] those of the Basilica of Saint Peterin the Vatican City, although it is not an outright replica.[3] The cornerstone was laid on 10 August 1985, and it was consecrated on 10 September 1990 by Pope John Paul II.

    Hello! I’m a picture researcher for a publishing house. We really like the second shot of the interior and are considering using it in our upcoming book. Can you please let me know if you would be able to supply a high-resolution file for it? Please send me an email and I can supply the book details.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Best,
    Deepak
