Holy Rosary Church Or the Stone Church, Sapa

3.0
#27 of 71 in Things to do in Sapa
See stone walls, and the bell tower of Holy Rosary Church Or the Stone Church, a Catholic church built in 1902. French built the church in early 20th century, as they retreated to the town. Because of that, the church stands in the heart of the town, at the place meaningful spiritually to Catholics. For building it, they used lime, molasses, and sand. When you stand in front, you’ll see brilliantly designed bell tower, with a big cross. Inside, you can see glass windows with images of Christ’s life.

Where to stay in Sapa

As the primary city to look for accommodations in the northwest, Sapa possesses a wealth of choices to suit a range of tastes and budgets. The main urban area offers a large number of standard hotels, hostels, and guesthouses, with views of the surrounding hills among the biggest brags in town.
