Nhà xứ Phát Diệm, Ninh Binh

(4.3/5 based on 95+ reviews on the web)
Marvel at an imposing castle-looking edifice of Nhà xứ Phát Diệm, an impressive Roman-Catholic cathedral built on a huge estate. Consecrated in 1892, the cathedral blends Sino-Vietnamese and European neo-Gothic styles with five separate side chapels and facing a large man-made pool. A colossal stone bell tower with Chinese-style pointed roofs surrounded by four side pinnacles. Admire angels carved in stone and elaborate woodworking at the altarpieces underneath tall single-nave painted ceilings supported by 54 pillars. Take a stroll around a well-maintained garden and enjoy serenity. Observe processions during festivities and holidays and climb the tower to get a panoramic view.

  • Please explore the information and then to visit the Church, you will understand and overwhelmed before the effort of those who built up this church before. A lot of interesting stories, the scenery is also very nice and peaceful. There are souvenir stalls outside, selling toys and specialty cakes, rice cakes.

  • To visit beautiful unusual Cathedral but unfortunately only from the outside. Is open only to the church services.

  • 中式木造與洋式彩繪共存的藝術品,走進教堂內瞬間會被內外的反差而驚豔。不用任何ㄧ根釘子蓋出,而是利用木頭契合技術完工。  more »

  • Visit each time I come to Ninh Binh. It is too beautiful with east-west combined architect. A Roman-styled church but with tons of Vietnamese culture in its designs. For example, the saints are mediating on top of the church as pics below
