Nhà xứ Phát Diệm, Ninh Binh

(4.3/5 based on 90+ 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.

  • 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
