Da Nang Cathedral, Da Nang

(380+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site
A sugar-pink structure lavishly decorated in the Gothic style, Da Nang Cathedral stands out as the only church in Da Nang. Constructed in 1923 by a French priest, the cathedral remains the only religious imprint left by French colonialists in the city. Approach a 70 m (229.7 ft) chocolate-box bell tower topped with a rooster weathervane, before entering a simply adorned interior of elegant arches and stained glass windows. Home to the Roman Catholic diocese in central Vietnam, the church serves over 4,000 of the local Catholic community, so get here early if you want to catch a sermon to avoid missing out on a seat. Use our Da Nang vacation planner to visit Da Nang Cathedral on your trip to Da Nang, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.

  • nên ghé thăm
  • The catherdal is very unique and attractive because of the pink colour. Near the catherdal there is a local bus stop. But the front door is always closed that the entrace is actually behind the alley, and many tourists may always misunderstand the route of entering into.
  • It's is what you can actually see from pics attached. Church isn't open for public viewing unless U attend mass during stipulated times.
  • Lovely place, close to the city
  • If you are with wife or someone. Go and take some photos. Pink. Pink. Pink.
