Mata-Utu Sights

Mata-Utu resembles a village, except for a massive cathedral of hand-cut blue volcanic stone with two blocklike towers overlooking the wharf. The Maltese cross between the towers also appears on the royal flag of Wallis. The king's palace, large but not ostentatious, is beside Mata-Utu Cathedral. On the waterfront opposite it is the Fale Fono, the main meeting place of the island's chiefs.
