7/50.- Saigon, Notre Dame Church


The Notre Dame Cathedral is another of the fingerprints the French left in the city of Saigon. The building, that stands in the center of Saigon, was built at the end of the 19th century. Inside you can admire typical french stained glass windows. The best in Vietnam.

It is possible to climb the belfry, from where there is a nice view of the center of Saigon.

Although most Vietnamese are Buddhists, there are a few of them that profess a different religion. Thanks to the French occupation of this land, the Catholic religion is the western religion with more followers.
