I was surprised to come across this Catholic Cathedral built in 1655. Still in good shape and mass is said in Mandarin

I've passed the Cathedral many times but took occasion to visit today. It is a building, built to the glory of God, that built in 1905 withstood the Cultural Revolution and is still in place today as a place of worship. The interior is simple....More

Located on Wangfujing shopping street this functioning Catholic Church is one of the oldest in China. Worth popping in for a respectful view if you're in the area. Architecturally fairly impressive and the area is generally quieter than the nearby shopping area, making a nice...More
