    Saint Joseph's Cathedral also known as Hanoi Cathedral. This Catholic cathedral was completed in 1887. It was closed in 1975 upon reunification of Vietnam, and was not reopened until 1985. The church itself has a striking presence with its two large square towers and can be visited any day of the week.

    St. Joseph's Cathedral is a catholic church that was built in 1886 and hold mass throughout the day. It is particularly impressive to visit in the evening when it is lit up.

    "The Catholic Cathedral of Hanoi" as the sign outside the church says. Nice stained glass windows. The interior is in traditional Vietnamese color of red and gold.

    Built in 1886, it was the main church in Saigon during the french colonization. It was closed during our visit.

    St Joseph Cathedral is located near the lake.

    We were there at night and the church bell sounded every 15 mins.

    The Saint Joseph Cathedral is an impressive sight, just west of Hoan Kiem Lake. Apparently, the cathedral is open to visitors at about 1700 each day.

    St. Joseph's Church has to be my favorite in all Hanoi. From the outside it appears very medieval, but the inside is decorated with gorgeous stained glass in traditional Catholic style.
