I enjoyed the hike up the stations of the cross. You could also hike past Mother Mary to the cross further up the hill.

I took a GRAB bike to visit the Mother Maria statue. It is located at the big mountain and I had to climb some steps up... there are some other ordinary statues just like those alongside the steps going up to Giant Jesus statue ....More

Most people know Jesus Christ statue in Vung Tau, neglect Mother Mary statue at opposite side. The way up there is easy n not so tedious. Since it is not as popular as Jesus Christ statue, less visitors, Catholics could spend more time there, either...More

I found it very peaceful here. The grounds/gardens are well kept. The statue of Mother Mary sits on the slope of a hill, and you can walk all the way up to the top of the hill to a look out point.

We visited at night. There were a few people there and at the church, there were prayer services going on. Modest dress should be respected at all times. Lots of stairs, the path is uneven and I'm sure we missed lots of the surrounding beauty...More

First, I have no religion. Second, this place is a sanctuary for those who seek quietness far away from touristy places. Easy to get there, follow along Tran Phu str, come to a quiet neighborhood and you will see the signboard. Enough said! Highly recommended...More

Great church, chapel, statues, seminary, nunnery etc all up the side of the mountain with fantastic views of the South China Sea. Opportunity to climb to statues for even better scenery if you are so inclined, great photo opportunities.

Hi, Sissy, sorry I am afraid unable to help you. We celebrated the mass by ourselves. We had a priest leading us.

The statue of Mary is very large. The height of a small apartment building... 12-14 floors maybe? I don't know that it is a convent, but it is certainly a religious site and you must dress/behave conservatively and... More
