This is the first catholic cathedral I have been in that wasn't dripping in gold. Centrally located, it is a small, barren building - functional rather than beautiful. It is opposite the Post Office and it takes you half an hour to do both sights.

Very nice church - did not actually go in but could view the evening service through the side open window. Lovely inside and worth a glance when passing through Ho Chi.

Nice old Cathedral draped in Easter atmosphere. Interesting and full of people. Popular with the locals brides for their wedding pictures.

Not a particularly interesting building when set against other city cathedrals and major churches.

It is next door to the post office and a short pleasant walk through parks to the Reunification Palace. So worth a visit to the area but not to see Notre Dame specifically.

we were very lucky as the cathedral is locked most of the time, we arrived just as a service was ending and went against the crowd leaving to view the inside and rub shoulders with priests
