Phu Cam main Cathedral is situated at Phuoc Vinh, Hue City. The
Cathedral was built with modern architecture, designed by the architect Ngo Viet Duc.
In early 1963, the construction of the
Cathedral was built. To 1967 only the Saint Palace was built and then to 1965, the
Cathedral was basically completed .Phu Cam cathedral was built by new concept of physical
structure. Supporting pillars were concreted closely attached to the walls and gradually
and supplely 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 interior of the Cathedral was built
following classical tradition with Latin Holy Cross and two opening doors. There are two
row of colour glass windows located in the upper interior of the Cathedral and in the
middle, there is a Holy Cross made of steel and concrete.
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.
