The relics of Maria Madalena church on Hai Ly beach

Maria Madalena church was destroyed by the sea during the cavitation process 20 years ago, leaving the most beautiful relics on Hai Ly beach, Nam Dinh, Vietnam. Local fishermen are still attached to the church so they use the church's yard as their working space in order to see the church everyday.
