Petit Futé's opinion on VAO MISSION
The Church of Our Lady of the Assumption in Vao, built in 1860, is a colourful building very representative of the New Caledonian island style. Inside, it is worth noting the beautiful ceiling and the multicoloured stained glass windows. The tabernacle and desks are made of carved wood. Behind the building, a path leads to a small chapel a little higher up, where a statue of the Virgin looks out over the world. The Grand Chiefdom is also nearby. Inaugurated in 2006, it is actually a building from the 1850s that has been restored.
