The Archbishop's Palace

With its imposing exterior, replete with wooden shutters and balconies, the Archbishop's Palace is said to be the oldest house in Ho Chi Minh City. Originally built in 1790 for the French Bishop of Adran, it was relocated in 1946 to its current site and last renovated in 1980. This colonial wonder is one of the best maintained examples of French architecture in Saigon.
 

If you want to visit a fine example of HCMC colonial architecture, look no further than The Archbishop's Palace. The property is located on Nguyen Dinh Chieu in District 3, Saigon. Its original appearance and shape have not been altered for over 200 years. However, in 1980, workmen replaced the insides of insect-eaten pillar wood with reinforced concrete. They managed to keep the outer wood shell though, so the appearance is one of antiquity.
