A stunning piece of architecture

So glad this piece of history has been preserved. The building is unique. The grounds make for a nice setting. Well worth seeing as part of a day tour.

The seminary is very large and it was original built with mud walls, some of which still remain. The grounds are extensive and are often used as a backdrop for wedding photos. The small ethnic museum on the second floor is very interesting...however we had to go three times in order to get in as it seems to be closed... More

Again, if u visit kon tum, u r likely with a motorcycle tour. This is probably one of the stops. I didnt find this compound to be exceptionally good. It is a building with a few religious figures.

the architecture of the building is realy worth to have a look. The museum is not always open, but if it is possible you see some historical things. There was a nun in the church and she invited us to visit the musuem. On some exhibitions she gived us explication

French influence evident in this beautiful building. Suspect it had the same architect as the church.

This building turned out to feature a very information dense and interactive museum display room. There were impressive wooden carvings and instruments that could be played. there are lots of great opportunities for taking photos.

The building is OK but it is the gardens which will catch your attention. A combination of an English formal garden with spots of interest of local minority items
