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.

This one is special because it is the biggest cathedral in Thailand in a mostly Buddhist country. And another aspect is the rather shiny statue of Maria, bedazzled with countless gems.

The church is an architectural wonder and the grandeur of its construction and interior mesmerizes any visitor. 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

I have visited this place. It is worth a visit. Sometimes the doors are closed, so you can only see the outside of the building. Make sure you wait until they open the doors, so you also can see the inside of the church. You...More

An absolute must; kids playing football, a nice little market and set on the river, this is truly a representation of the culture of this city. Very nice for sunset also.

Beautiful. As if it were in Europe. The last place I'd expect to find a such a work of art. It was only unfortunate that we did not get to go inside as it was after 5pm.

This is one of the main attraction in Chanthaburi not to be missed during your visit. It is located in the heart of the city near to some canals. Very historic place.
