I'm Italian so if you wanted to see real old churches go to Italy rather than an insignificant and abandoned church with some vandalism graffiti and rubbish left by also insignificant ignorant tourists. Wasted my day on a tour.

The church itself is not that impressive. But the story of how it was used by the Khmer Rouge is heartbreaking. 1 of my photos is of bullet holes inside the church where executions took place.

Took my family there while they were visiting the country. Nice view and panorama, the church in itself is simply a ruin and has not particular features. Not a must in a tourist trip, still a nice landmark on the mountain.

An interesting site in Bokor park. Once you explore the church, come out and go to the back and climb up. You can get some beautiful views of Kampot/Kep from there.

Any place that's abandoned is well worth checking out for creators! The exterior looks beautifully weathered down and the inside is nice and quiet. To the back left of the church is a staircase that leads to an INCREDIBLE view. Do not check out this...More

It's a cool place. If you go there when it is foggy it even has this awesome, creepy Scooby-Doo vibe. However, when you go inside the whole place is ruined by graffiti. I mean, good for you if you're an atheist, but do you really...More

The ruins of this church are still very much intact and it was quite interesting to walk around it. If you walk up the hill a little there are great views of Kampot. Worth a visit.

This simply is a church, an old church. Nothing special so far, but try to ask some local people about what happened at the church. There are some pretty amazing stories around. Enjoy the old.
