Holy Rosary Church Or the Stone Church, Sapa

#6 of 10 in Sightseeing in Sapa
Church Tourist Spot
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.
