Danang Cathedral - Review
Built with astonishing speed in 1924, at a time when Vietnam was still under French occupation, the bubble-gum pink colored church is a striking sight. The style is Gothic, with rhombic arches over the entrance. At the very top of the building is a metal alloy rooster, inspired by stories from St. Peter. At 70 metres of height, the church towers prominent over the city centre. In 1963, the church was officiallyr recognised as Danang Cathedral. Behind the church is a grotto, fashioned after the Lourdes grotto in France.

Danang Cathedral, Da Nang Reviews
I stumbled here by just exploring the area and was pulled in by the horde of people queuing to take part in some catholic ceremony. The interior - from my vantage point outdoors - looked interesting and typically glittery, but I'm just not into these weird rituals, so I can't see myself visiting this place specifically again. The Mass was packed full of people but there were quite a few others taking in the ceremony outside, seated on chairs; the whole thing was being broadcast live on a giant screen on one side of the cathedral. Most of the watchers seemed to be supplicants.
Interesting exterior, and rich in history. Haven't been inside as there was no mass services on that day. However, the place was packed with foreign tourists taking pictures of and with the building.
This seems to be a very famous place among both civilians and tourists, because of its distictive colour and history. It is also one of the best spots to take pictures, thanks to its holes through the wall that show beautiful lines.
Just a normal catholic church. Dont understand why it is so famous. Pink catholic church... Hmm.. When i visited this olace, they had a chapel. If u have a belief, it would be a good chance to join them. But other wise, it seems strange to see some people standing outside just for travel, some people sitting in the church for a chapel. Same place, different purpose.
A cute church with a pastel aesthetic. The area is nice, but it only takes around 10 minutes to see everything, so it's only worth it if you're also checking out other attractions in the city centre, like the Han Market.
