Location: Phu Cam Main Cathedral is
situated at Phuoc Vinh Ward, Hue City.
Characteristic: Phu Cam Cathedral was built in a modern architectural
style, designed by the architect Ngo Viet Duc.
In early 1963, the construction of the cathedral was built. To 1965 only the
Saint Palace was built and then to 1967, the cathedral was basically completed.
Supporting pillars were concreted closely attached to the walls and gradually
bended ahead. The three supporting pillars at each of four corners stretch out
and create a fairly large space to embrace the whole of Saint Palace and Saint
Altar. The Saint Palace is a round shape with foot steps and on the top there is
a smaller round shape with the altar made of marble bloc. Temporary house was
closely built to the backstage of the cathedral fitted in the concave part
behind and settle on a high platform in the center. In the two wings of the
crucifix, there is the tomb of the former archbishop Philipe Nguyen Kim Dien
(1921-1988) in the left and in the opposite right - the altar for presenting the
Saint. The interior of the cathedral was built following classical tradition
with Latin Holy Cross and two doors. There are two row of color glass windows
located in the upper interior of the cathedral and in the middle, there is a
Holy Cross made of steel and concrete. In front of the Phu Cam Main Cathedral
there are two molding statues: the right is the Saint Phero, the left is Saint
Paulo and other missionaries of the Phu Cam diocese. The open-space of Phu Cam
main cathedral looks like an opening-mouth-dragon and in general Phu Cam
Cathedral with its top perpendicularly stretching to the sky is very purified
and full of artistic and religious characters.
