Holy Rosary Church Or the Stone Church, Sapa

3.0
#26 of 68 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.

  • A Catholic Church, with an engaging in a garden. Pity that as almost all is closed, only being able to peek through Windows

  • I think it is more worth the outside than the inside, but if you visit Sapa it is very likely that lead you in the morning to do some trekking in the area of paddy fields and that evening it have free, so it is almost certainly in the afternoon you have time travel a little Sapa and this church is in the Centre, so it is very easy to find you. Do kilometers to go and see it not is if it is worth, but if you are there, I think Yes. It is surprising that in the middle of a country with a culture so different to ours a building of these features is preserved although they were the French during the colonial era who built it.

  • This church is central and serves as a gathering place for locals. For tourists, there is not much to see there. Local people come inside to avoid the rain. It's cold and wet. Children play in front of the Church.
