Nhà xứ Phát Diệm, Ninh Binh

4.4
#4 of 6 in Sightseeing in Ninh Binh
Church Tourist Spot
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.

  • Really interesting place to visit. This religious site has a unique architecture, and stays original till now. Unfortunately there is a ceremony during my short visit so I didn't go into the main chamber.
  • 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
  • Nice cathedral in Northern Vietnam

Where to stay in Ninh Binh

A hub for travel throughout the province, Ninh Binh features a decent number of accommodations for a town of its size. Take a look close to the main train station for the town's most-frequented hotels. Standing in a cluster in this central area, they represent convenient options, given their proximity to the main restaurants, shops, and services. Over to the west of town, a selection of homestays provide interesting options among the karst landscape of Ninh Binh, with some refined, and others a little more budget-friendly.
