  • A very beautiful Cathedral! Both inside and outside! Chinese inside somehow not allowed, unlike us. In the service come mostly African Americans. The service is in English.

  • The church is not open to public except suddent period on Sunday, untill Aug 11, 2017, due to renovation. Visitor only can take photos from outside the gate.  more »
  • deep in the stone jungle Guangzhou lies an amazing Church, the only Christian Church in the city. This place is frequented by both Catholics and Orthodox residents and guests of Guangzhou. the place is quite unusual, came to the service, which was conducted by the Chinese, and the service itself was quite strange

  • 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

Where to stay in Guangzhou

Guangzhou's commercial industries make it well-equipped to host visitors, though do book well ahead of time if traveling during the peak fall and spring trade fair rushes. The city's gleaming skyscrapers contain a number of the best four- and five-star hotels in Guangzhou, while others lie tucked away in historical European-style buildings. For budget-friendlier options, a number of youth hostels welcome a steady stream of international visitors, though most are located outside of the city center.
