Entering this majestic church is like walking into 1886, as little has changed since it first opened its doors.

St Josephs is a place that will take you back in time. For for court in front the Cathedral is a great place to sit and watch the world go by. Lots of locals go here on the weekend and is a place of activity.

The cathedral while different for Vietnam is not a cathedral of any great architectural merit inside or out. It is very popular with local couples as a background to wedding photos and watching people use the square in front of the cathedral is the highlight.

Large cathedral, somewhat dilapidated outside but simple and lovely inside. We got a bit lost trying to find it but it is quite close to the lake and main roads. Interesting and varied shops nearby

The traditional church sits imposingly on a square surrounded by the madness of Asian building structures. While the outside is interesting, the inside is remarkable and definitely worth a visit, especially the ceiling line to the right of the main space and the alter itself
