Hung Nghia Nam Dinh parish, located in Hai Hung commune (Hai Hau district, Nam Dinh province) about 30km from the center of Nam Dinh city, was constructed in 1927 as the Gothic architecture of France, Spain. Over the years, however, the church has been deteriorated by the effects of inclement weather. Until 2000, Hung Nghia parish was renovated, repaired and until 2007, it was completely completed from inside and outside.

Since then, the church has worn a unique color, rarely found anywhere. With the special pattern and architecture, Hung Nghia church is not only a check-in flavor of tourists but also the same as an ancient castle in European heaven.
