    KON TUM, LET'S GO TO AN UNKNOWN LAND

    By going to the landlocked province of Kon Tum, located in the Central Highlands near the borders of Laos and Cambodia, you will discover another face of Vietnam, more authentic and in direct contact with the ancestral traditions of the ethnic minorities that populate the region. A province marked by the imprint of history, it is full of beautiful surprises and unexpected encounters.

    The superb wooden church of Kon Tum

    The Kon Tum region was once a true land of Catholic missionaries. The evangelization of this region began more than 170 years ago with the presence of the Foreign Missions of Paris. It is in 1848, in the midst of the persecution of Catholicism in Vietnam, that we must go back to these origins. Bishop Etienne Cuénot, then Vicar Apostolic of Eastern Cochinchina - he was later martyred and canonized - was at the origin of the first attempts to proclaim the Gospel in this region. Built in 1913 and dedicated to St. Cuénot, the wooden church of Kon Tum retains a certain cachet despite the concrete reconstruction of the base walls. You will appreciate its pointed roof like the ones of the communal houses, its interior rich in precious wood decorations, its majestic bell tower over 20 meters high, its wooden floor raised one meter to allow ventilation and its superb multicoloured stained glass windows depicting passages from the Bible. Today, the diocese of Kon Tum is home to more than 200,000 Catholics, two-thirds of whom belong to ethnic minorities.
