It is Vietnam’s Central Highlands most interesting and well-known Christian centre. Built in 1931 in the style of the Roman Church, with the bell tower reaching 47 metres, it is the highest in south Vietnam providing a city centre landmark. It was originally built for use by French colonial residents and holiday-makers alike. The Cathedral was funded by donations gathered by Father Nicolas, the Catholic priest of Dalat. The church itself is rarely open outside of mass times. Mass is held at 5.15am and 5.15pm Monday to Saturday and 5.15am, 7.00am, 8.30am, 2.30pm and 4.00pm on Sundays.
