Da Nang Cathedral

The Da Nang Cathedral, known to the locals as “Nha Tho Con Ga” (Rooster Cathedral) because of its copper rooster weathervane, is located at 156 Tran Phu Street.   
Priest Louis Vallet had the idea to build the church and he led the construction work which began in the Rue du Musée Street (now called Tran Phu Street) in February 1923.  The church officially opened its doors on 10 March 1924 with the purpose of serving the French Catholics who lived in Da Nang at that time.  According to an explanation from the priest, the rooster on the roof of the church is not in fact the symbol of France, but is a symbol associated with St Peter's story in the Gospel about repentance and awakening.  This church was the only one built in the city during the French Colonial period.


The cathedral measures about 70 meters in height, and it’s Gothic-style design is an amazing and marvelous architectural structure incorporating several medieval stained glass windows of various saints.  The Cathedral has been awarded a medal by the Vatican Holy See.


Behind the church is a grotto of the Blessed Virgin Mary, which is a replica of the Lourdes Grotto in France.

At present, the cathedral serves 4,000 parishioners, and offers services in different languages with sermons in English every Sunday at 9am.  Late-comers for services often find all the seats are taken.
