Update: I have severely underestimated the frequency of geocachers at this site ... At this incredibly high logging rate I won't be able to maintain it ... So I would appreciate your help - please bring a regular Nano logsheet and replace the current one if you can. Thank you!!

This magnificent cathedral is more impressive from the outside...
A typical French building ... in neoroman style, built between 1877 and 1880. The bricks might remind you of Toulouse (not from Marseille)... In 1895, two bell towers were added to the cathedral. Bishop Joseph Pham Van Thien, whose jurisdiction included Saigon parish, attended the Marian Congress held in Vatican and ordered a statue of Our Lady of Peace made with granite in Rome. When the statue arrived in Saigon, Bishop Pham Van Thien held a ceremony to install the statue on the empty base and presented the title of "Regina Pacis". It was the same bishop who wrote the prayers "Notre-Dame bless the peace to Vietnam".
Masses in Vietnamnese, French and English.
