4. Catholic Sites

The Chapel at the Archbishop’s ResidenceThe Chapel at the Archbishop’s ResidenceThe Chapel at the Archbishop’s Residence: the oldest building of Hồ Chí Minh City. In 1790, Nguyễn Ánh, 12 years before becoming king (King Gia Long in 1802), had his people to build a house on the right bank of Thị Nghè Canal to be the inn for Bishop Pigneau de Béhaine who was teacher of the Prince Cảnh. In 1799, its roof was recovered with tiles, and after the death of Bishop Pigneau (9.10.1799), it became the inn for missionaries, then the house of Bishop Dominique Lefèbre (1844-1864), and then the chapel for Secretary of Bishop Miche (1864-1873) to come to celebrate Mass. In 1946, it was transferred to a place near the nowaday Thống Nhất Palace and called Tân Xá Palace. In 1911, it was moved to the nowaday the Archbishop’s Residence of Hồ Chí Minh City.
