  • The largest Christian /Catholic Church in Guangzhou. The Neo-Gothic style of the fully equipped and active church impresses locals and travelers in the same way. The interior atmosphere often is more the same like in a Buddhist Temple. (Pls, avoid any noise and walking around DURING SERVICE, because they don't like that.)
  • It is certainly one of the bigger church in China and worth a visit but be prepared to abused by unfriendly staffs. They treat visitors like dirt. Gate remains closed even past opening hours. To make matter worst, the church was closed for no apparent reasons so visitors are allow only to walk around the compound. Many visitors waited for more than an hour for the church to open only to find out that the church itself is closed.
  • You can stop at Gongyuaqian MRT station and exit I2
  • when sunlight pass though the color glass, really love it.
  • Beautiful cathedral in an old city
