This cathedral in the center of Nha Trang is yet another testimony to the spread of Christianity over the world. It is constructed by the French and is perfectly functioning, even newly weds come to take picture in front of the building. It was built in 1928 and has several different names, but official local name is Kito Cathedral.

Compared to the rest of the architecture in Nha Trang, the Nha Tho Nui Catholic cathedral is definitely unique. Beautiful stone statues line the perimeter of the church, a unique and peaceful retreat from the bustle of Nha Trang.

Easy walk from hotel cost is free , take your time, read the history and enjoy. The architecture of this place alone is worth the visit, but the hustle and bussel of the walk and then the church make it a nice enjoyable time

This Catholic cathedral stands tall and proud atop a hill. A walkway climbs around the building attended by the apostles and the stations of the cross.

This was beautiful site to visit and just a short walk from the Big Buddha. Very tranquil! Depending on the day I'm sure you'll see a Vietnamese couple having wedding photo's.

As a lover of Cathedral architecture it was cool to visit. There are not many of this style in Asia so well worth a visit.

From the first time I heard of it, I knew that Nha Tho Nui is a site worth visiting. It's a solid but beautiful building and off the beaten path. There were no crowds of tourists or locals, which means that if you are looking for a quiet and pleasant stroll at the same time enjoying some great historical and... More

It was built on the back of the dragon lying along the city by French to keep it sleep forever...., a legend said. It is located in the heart of the city with the beauty of the stone on a hill...

it offers a different view to the city, and it is worth to visit then. However, with almost empty all the time i have been there, it is not too interesting for me. but still it is a beautiful building and can be a landmark for the areas surround it
