Saigon Notre Dame Cathedral, Ho Chi Minh City
(3.6/5 based on 4,800+ reviews on the web)
Saigon Notre Dame Cathedral stands as a testament to the impact of the French culture and Christian civilization on Indochina. The neo-Romanesque red-brick cathedral was considered the most beautiful church in the French colonies at the time it was built (between 1877 and 1883). The two belfries, which were added in 1895, rise to the height of 60 m (190 ft). See some of the original stained-glass windows inside the entrance and the devotional tablets on interior walls. The cathedral was the center of media attention in 2005, when thousands of devotees flocked around the Virgin Mary statue that reportedly shed tears in front of the main entrance.

  • The Cathedral was not able to go into my door shut. The main post office is in front. The Cathedral of our Lady of prayer on the front would not be able to do enough. It became a tourist destination than a religious place.

  • 建築體外觀看起來很棒,不用收費,室內不能帶帽子,參觀的人非常多。覺得可惜的事沒辦法看到彌撒時間的狀況。 
  • I first saw this in 1967, it is a beautiful building but needs some repairs. It is not open to the public as much as it should. The area is a tourist hot spot with the Post office and other buildings ...  more »

  • If you ask all people VietNam about the famous church, them 'll ask you Đức Bà Church. The Church has been long year ago, and architecture follow Fance, so this very vintage. Every night, when the sunset, some teenager have been together, sit along roadside, drink coffee and eat some fast food sell along the roadside, and together coversation. If you come to HoChiMinh, you 'll try once time.
  • Very nice cathedral Church. We arrived at Night time and scenes are awfully gorgeous.
  • A old building in the main point of the modern city. It's made by French and very touristy. Also the atmosphere is really fresh and nice, people hang out & drink coffee a lot!
  • Kien truc dep
  • Very similar with France Notre dame. Really good place for photo in HCMC.
