Da Nang Cathedral is known by the locals as 'Rooster Cathedral' because of the weathercock sitting atop the impressive steeple. Locating in Tran Phu Road, Da Nang, the candy-pink building was constructed in 1923, the French Colonial period, for French residents by Priest Louis Vallet, according to whom the rooster is a symbol related with St Peter's story in the Gospel about repentance and awakening. 

With a height of 70 meters, the church is in Gothic-style and an amazing architecture that won a medal by the Vatican Holy See. Inside the church, there are holy pictures and statues depicting the Bible events as motifs ofWestern churches. Gorgeous medieval stained-glass windows of various saints reflect the delicate interior of the building. Grotto of the Blessed Virgin Mary, a replica of the Lourdes Grotto in France, is placed behind the church.
