Notre dame cathedral in Ho Chi Minh City

This basilica’s French connection goes deeper than just its name. It was built during French colonial rule as a miniature version of Paris’ Notre Dame Cathedral. Squint hard enough and you’ll see similarities in the twin towers and rose window. Not only that, but the Gallic influence is in-built – it’s made from red bricks from Marseille and glasswork from Chartres. Ooh la-la!
