The twin-towered Notre Dame Cathedral in Saigon merits at least a visit & a photo. Constructed between 1863 and 1880, the church was built by the French colonists entirely from materials brought over from France. The somber atmosphere inside Notre Dame Cathedral in Saigon is a testament to the thousands of prayers for peace given there throughout both the French & American wars in Vietnam.

A highlight of seeing the cathedral is the Virgin Mary statue which reportedly shed tears in 2005, causing a frenzy of traffic và onlookers. Although the church's official stance is that no tears were shed, thousands of witnesses claim otherwise.

The Notre Dame Cathedral occupies a large block east of the Reunification Palace on Pasteur Street. Directly across the street you'll find the Saigon Central Post Office, another must-see in the city!
