Located on a small hill right in the middle of Nhatrang town, this church is an unavoidable landmark of the city with its rough and squarish roman catholic church style.

this is situated right in the city,within 15min walk from Sheraton hotel. there are few local worshipping &chanting during our visit on a Thursday afternoon, relics and monuments are all in good condition, it's also windy due to the high grounds, visitors are scarce,we spent about 2hours taking photos of the cathedral from different angle.

If you are out walking the sights of Nha Trang then don't pass this by. It sits on a rise near the town centre not far from the Pagoda and the railway station. It is a very peaceful (when we visited) place. Quite austere for a catholic church. We were lucky to see a wedding party also which gave the... More

This is really a very beautiful and well kept church. Very popular for photos with a number of wedding parties taking their wedding photos on the grounds and around the church. Well worth a visit in the centre of Nha Trang.

Yes, that's my impression right at the first time I saw it. What the stone walls!! Gothic architect makes it more classical. The special thing is the wall along the path to the church. They carved dead's names there and pray for them frequently.

I love the architecture of this cathedral. Simply magnificently constructed. I visited it on a Sunday and had a chance to see a prayer session for the first time of my life! It was really peaceful.

The stone church made by French people. Located at the center of city, on the way to supermarket Maximark. Take a look if you have free time.
