Magnificent building. Located in the middle of large roads, this structure is just beside the post office and is the largest and one of the oldest cathedrals in the whole of Vietnam.

This church is just located opposite the famous post office. Nice achitectual building, a place that you must visit in HCMC

The cathedral was about a 10 minute walk from my guesthouse and was definitely worth getting lost for!It is absolutely gorgeous! The architecture and windows are just beautiful. Given I was there for architectural and not religious reasons I chose not to go inside but other travelers were also very positive about the inside too.

Very well maintain both inside & outside. Close for lunch until 3pm. Head for post office instead. You can enter the praying area to have a closer view but need to keep silent.

This was the second stop on the $7 tour we did, and thank goodness there was no entry charge because all you can do is walk in to the back section of the church and then straight back out. The outside of the building is as good as the inside - and as it is not an old building, a lot of the charm you may automatically think is there is missing.
