Da Nang Catheral, Da Nang

3.2
#1 of 8 in Historic Sites in Da Nang
A sugar-pink structure lavishly decorated in the Gothic style, Da Nang Catheral stands out as the only church in Da Nang. Constructed in 1923 by a French priest, the cathedral remains the only religious imprint left by French colonialists in the city. Approach a 70 m (229.7 ft) chocolate-box bell tower topped with a rooster weathervane, before entering a simply adorned interior of elegant arches and stained glass windows. Home to the Roman Catholic diocese in central Vietnam, the church serves over 4,000 of the local Catholic community, so get here early if you want to catch a sermon to avoid missing out on a seat.

  • This cathedral is the one of famous land marks in Da-nang. There are many tourists all the time, from morning to evening. If you want to take a solo picture, Visit here around 4.30 PM. But the guard, maybe, can not allow you to come in. Sometimes that is possible in case of 'No mass' day. And the first time of visiting here will be fun but next time will be boring. Have a nice trip.
  • Definetely not worth a visit. We were visiting on a Monday at 11am and all entry doors were closed. Raised as a catholic I am not used to churches which are closing their doors to the public and was quite disappointed. But in good old catholic fashion the donation boxes next to the doors seemed to be properly serviced and in a good working condition.
