In the list of 7 famous churches of Hanoi, the St. Joseph's Cathedral (Nha Tho street, Hoan Kiem district, Hanoi) with ancient architecture is a must-visit destination for many tourists when they come to the capital.

These days, the Cathedral is being renovated. That's why it has a new blue "coat" outside.

St. Joseph's Cathedral's architecture is characterized by European Gothic architecture, with wide and curved domes facing the sky.

However, the church still has details imbued with Vietnamese cultural identity. For example, it has many details that were carefully carved and painted in gold color. Some parts of the place were built of terracotta bricks and the walls were plastered with paper mache.

The church has a length of 64.5m and a width of 20.5m with two bell towers of 31.5m high.

Over time, the paint on the outside of the church is peeling and needs to be repaired./.
