Da Lat Cathedral- Con Ga Church
Besides the name ” Dalat Cathedral Church”, local people also call it “Con Ga Church” (because on the bell tower, there is a lightning rod cast which is in the shape of a chicken). The Cathedral was constructed in 1931 and completed in 1942 with the title of Saint Nicola Bari. Then it was changed to the title “Mary Mother of God”
The architectural shape is designed symmetrically in the classic way, 65m long, 14m wide, and 47m high bell tower.
This is a beautiful and valuable architectural work. This is also the place to regularly organize moral activities of Dalat.

Domaine de Marie Church
Coming to Dalat, besides familiar places such as Xuan Huong Lake, Love valley, Prenn waterfall, visitors definitely cannot ignore Domaine De Marie Church – Notre Dame Territory which is on Ngo Quyen Street, just 1km southwest of Dalat city center.
Domaine De Marie Church is designed to be built according to European architecture in the seventeenth century combined with some Vietnamese folk architecture. This is a more unique architecture than any other church in Dalat so its own characteristics cannot be confused.
The church has a unique architecture thanks to cultural interference in the combination of classical Western styles and folk architecture of ethnic minorities in the Central Highlands.
Currently, this place is one of the most attractive tourist destinations in Da Lat. If you are planning to travel to Dalat, remember not to miss this unique architecture.

Du Sinh Church
Surely the name of this ancient church has made many visitors curious, right ? It is named after the transliteration of Father Buu Duong, the founder of the parish called Du Sinh. Besides, it is also thought that “Du Sinh” refers to the origin of the residents here. However, some people think that “Du Sinh” refers to the faithful of Christ about their earthly pilgrimage.
Du Sinh Church is nestled on a hill on Huyen Tran Cong Chua Street of Ngan Hoa city. This ancient church was inaugurated by Priest Thien Phong Buu Duong for parishioners who migrated from the North from 1955 to Christmas 1957, when inaugurated, only the bell tower was completed in 1962.
When I built the Du Sinh church, I just said that I would build it temporarily because my dream was to build a church with bold Asian architecture. But not long after that, Father Buu Duong had to change his job, so the dream failed. The church is preserved and kept until today and become one of the ideal destinations in Dalat.

In addition, this is also the main house of the Vinh Son Missionary Congregation (Vietnam Vicariate).
