Da Nang Cathedral

Da Nang Cathedral

The rooster church

More on Da Nang
The towering 70-metre, Gothic-styled cathedral was constructed by priest Louis Vallet in 1923 and was the only church built in Da Nang by French colonialists.
Travelfish says:

Locals call it con ga (rooster church) due to the weathercock sitting on the top of its steeple. It’s not a standout attraction, but as the city’s skyline gives way to more modern, highrise architecture it makes for an interesting look back to the city’s colonial past. It’s also rather flamboyant, painted a bright candy pink.

The design and decoration of the grotto of Our Lady behind the church is an adaptation of the grotto in Lourdes. Mass is held several times a day from Wednesday to Saturday.
