3.2/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web
Explore one of the remaining Roman Catholic structures at Notre Dame Square. Built by French colonists in the late 19th century in the neo-Romanesque style, the cathedral received the status as a basilica by the Vatican in 1962 and remains one of most prominent Christian centers in a largely Buddhist Vietnam. As you approach the holy site, notice the two bronze bell towers rising up 58 m (190 ft), as well as the statue of the Virgin Mary, made from marble imported from Rome. All of the initial materials were brought from France, including the red bricks, floor tiles, and glass squares; after the war, however, many damaged parts were replaced with domestic materials. Enjoy the calm ambience of the holy site--in spite of noisy traffic around it.
