Sacred Heart Church

Tirana’s oldest surviving Catholic church was built in 1865 as a gift from the emperor Franz Joseph. Closed in 1967 at the start of the regime’s campaign against religion, the building functioned as a cinema until the early 1990s. For a Catholic church, the interior is incredibly modest, looking more like an interior one would expect to find inside a typically austere-looking church in a small English market town. Overshadowed by the much more recent St. Paul’s Cathedral, the daily Mass is still reasonably well attended.
