The Cathedral of Tripoli in the 1960s.

Tripoli Cathedral was a Roman Catholic cathedral in Tripoli, the capital of Libya. It is located in the city center.

The cathedral was officially opened in 1928, and among those who contributed in the interior design and decoration of the cathedral was the libyan artist "Othman nejem".

Tripoli Cathedral is not the first in the city; there was an old catholic cathedral built in 1870, which was called Santa Maria degli Angeli and was constructed by the Maltese community in Tripoli.[1]

In 1970, the cathedral was converted into the Maidan al Jazair (Algeria Square) Mosque, and subsequently significantly rebuilt.
