Bao Nham stone church in Nghe An
Bao Nham is the only stone church in Nghe An, located in Bao Thanh Commune, Yen Thanh District and built on an area of 7,750m2

The church of Bao Nham parish established in 1887, the oldest parish in Vinh diocese, was made entirely of stone with the French architecture

Documents say a French priest named Adolphe Klinglé chose the location for building the parish church.

The French priest thought that this area is similar to the one in France where a church had been built and he had been the priest of that church.

The construction of Bao Nham Stone Church began in 1888  and was completed in 1904.

The church has a Gothic style, upon a model of Luoxo Church in France.

Bars of stone have been skillfully arranged

 The Church is 37m high and 14m wide, and has a  campanile of 28m high.

The construction work considered by France as one of most unique churches in Indochina by that time.

 Bao Nham Stone Church is not only the place of spiritual activities for the local Catholic population, but also the tourism place for thousands of population everywhere.

Entering the church, one might feel as coming into a region of the Western world.

Along the way to the church, many statues have been erected.

There is a big rock mountain on a flatten geographical area adjacent to the church.

Inside the mountain, there are many attractive landscapes and architectural works.
