Charming church easily accessible by ferry from Sanam Chai MRT. Centrepiece of a small Portuguese enclave, with plenty to see on foot surrounding it. Well worth a half day visit for both Bangkokians & tourists.

The history of this roman catholic church goes back to the 17th century when Portugese sailors got this piece of land to build a church on. This is the stone (and second) verzuim, built in the 18th century.

Situated on the banks of the Chao Phraya River, this church is a striking change from the surrounding building. Set slightly back from the river, it is a grand symbol of the influence of the Portuguese explorers who roamed the world in the 16th &...More

Perhaps special for Thailand, but the architecture of this Roman Catholic church completed in 1916 is not outstanding, nor is the interior. However, the history is interesting as the original (wooden) church was built on a plot of land given to Portugese catholics by king...More

Within easy riverside walk from Wat Arun, this Roman Catholic Church established in XVIII century by Portuguese is well worth visiting for its architecture and paintings as a part of Thonburi day tour.

The Santa Cruz Church was a wonderful morning adventure. The Portuguese came to Siam's aid when the Burmese invaded down the Chao Phraya, lending them cannons for the fight. A grateful King Thaskin deed them land in return and the original church was built on...More

Located on the opposite side (from most major sights/hotels) of the Chao Phraya River is this pleasant church. It is tucked away down an alley yet just steps from the river and nearby water taxi stop. The interior features an impressive barrel shaped roof with...More

I am a Catholic, and this is a Catholic church of course. It's one of the best experience I've had in BKK. The church is quite far away from city center, or from the shopping malls area, could cost you around 150-200 baht by taxi,...More
