Notre Dame Cathedral (Notre-Dame Basilica) in Ho Chi Minh City

Constructed by the French in the 1800s, Notre Dame Cathedral is a famous ancient cathedral in Vietnam tourism of South. Twin towers reaching to 190 feet capture the interest of people strolling. The entire cathedral was constructed with materials brought from France; the red bricks came from Marseille while the colored glass windows were made in France’s Chartres Province. Most of the original tiles still bear markings from France, although many new tiles have replaced ones damaged during the war. In front of the Cathedral is a Virgin Mary statue.

This magnificent building attracts not only Catholics but also most tourists for its neo-Romanesque style architecture and a sacred atmosphere. Peaceful green spaces lined with shade trees and park benches lead up to Notre Dame Cathedral.

With a central location in Ho Chi Minh City, it is easy to visit the Notre Dame Cathedral when walking between popular destinations such as the War Remnants Museum and the Reunification Palace. The cathedral occupies a block just northeast of the Reunification Palace at the intersection of Dong Khoi Street and Pasteur Street - near the Central Post Office.
