Built by French this church is quite large. It is still in good shape. Will take less than one hour to see the whole place.

Beautiful church with a lovely garden at the front. Not open at all times so check if you want to look inside. Across the road is the Saigon post office, another beautiful building.

Was there yesterday nite, Very attractive church that I visited .Saigon Notre-Dame Cathedral is located in the downtown of Ho Chi Minh City. It was constructed between 1863 and 1880 by the French, and reaches a height of up to 60 meters.

Nothing special and you need to cover yourself up. The outside was boring and inside was nothing interesting to see.

Classical architecture right in the heart of Saigon and near tourists attraction. Good spot for photography. You will see tourists and locals hang out for photography here. It's fascinating.

The building is quite beautiful externally however internal access is very limited and, when it is open, visitors are only allowed in the entrance area and no where else. Its a very brief visit indeed.

Centrally located and right next to post office (so you get 2 for 1) sights in this is a well kept Catholic Church within walking distance and right in district 1. If you like churches worth a look in.

Following a failed visit due to the opening hours, when I actually got to enter this cathedral it was very disappointing. There is only a very small area to visit with the vast majority of the building being reserved for prayers (during alloted service times).
