Nice looking catholic church, built more than hundred years ago by French missionaries. Supposedly the biggest of its kind all over Thailand. Didn’t go inside, since it was closed. Often used as main landmark of the city of Chanthaburi.

I was able to see the outside and it was gorgeous. I got there at 6pm Sunday but unfortunately it was close. There's a chapel on the side where I was able to say my thanks to God. Definitely a must see.

Given the increasing number of tourists swarming the place, i hope the church management ensures that peace and quietness and respect is absolutely maintained. Especially non-Christians should be...More
