Sitting between two busy streams of traffic, the streets outside are always bustling with tourists, locals and street vendors. Although the decor is austere, the church comes alive during services.

Location: Cong Xa Paris, D1
Time: 5:30am-5:00pm, Sunday Mass is held at 9:30am

Local insight: On weekends the cathedral is a favourite spot for wedding photographers.
