The Notre Dame Basilica, translated as “Nhà thờ Đức Bà Sài Gòn”, is one of the most famous landmarks in Ho Chi Minh City. It was constructed between 1863 and 1880, and all its red bricks and coloured glass windows were created in France. Today, the Cathedral still holds deep meaning for Vietnam’s Catholic population, and remains as one of the most visited landmarks by locals and tourists alike in Ho Chi Minh City.
