Great Photo place

Beautiful! The night market/food area in front of the building was pleasant - a good local variety and great sunset photos are possible.

The courtyard is lovely, with statues and flowers surrounding the church. The Church itself is simple but elegant. Well worth a stop to see this old landmark built in 1920's.

Overlooking the square where the night market is held this French built church is beautifully located in the centre of the historic quarter of Savannakhet. Well worth a visit to see the church and the other historic buildings nearby - plus sample the wide range of food, eateries and places to drink nearby.

This church ⛪ gives to Savannakhet a very old charm. It creates a peaceful ambiance around.by some cues it could be Cuba Area or south of France.

A very quiet and peaceful church that towers at the end of the night market strip in the Historic Old Town. When you get up close, you'll find it's nestled within a tropical garden with statues of Jesus and Virgin Mary. Worth a look!

Nothing spectacular, but certainly the landmark of Savannakhet. The church has a very peaceful atmosphere. In front of the church there is a popular night market.

Savannakhet is a wonderful old town to tour by walking or bicycle. Take a walk or ride do to the Mekong River as there are lots of places and things to see.

A nice catholic church in this quaint old French colonial town of Savannakhet. This is certainly the landmark of the town. A nice night market comes alive at night in front of the church in the open area where can get nice street food.

Nothing spectacular compared to so many other world religious sites BUT rather what makes this unique is its rarity in Lao PDR and its divisions at times with Communist officials, of which you can research more if interested. Catholics make up only 0.7% of the population and even this figure would be debatable of how active this 0.7% is. That... More
