As the largest catholic cathedral in Southeast Asia, Immaculate Conception Cathedral represents the main church of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Dili. Construction began in 1984, and the church is known for its exterior, built in a modern, minimalistic architecture style with touch of traditional Portuguese style at the bell tower.
