Qingdao Catholic Church, Qingdao

(4/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
See an important landmark of the old town at Qingdao Catholic Church, an active place of worship built by German missionaries. Built in 1934 in a striking Romanesque Revivalist style, with twin towers and a cruciform plan, the cathedral stands atop a hill, dominating the surrounding area with a height of 56 m (184 ft) and autumnal coloration. Under Chairman Mao and the time of the Cultural Revolution, the church was abandoned and fell into disrepair. Repaired and reopened by the government in 1985, the church stands as a Provincial Historic Building, is open for services, and has become a popular site for photography.

  • 要走一段石板路方到教堂,教堂前有一片空地,正好讓遊人在以教堂為背景拍照留念。入場參觀需付人民幣10元買票。一進閘內就會看見聖母像。教堂內的裝潢、建築還算宏偉,沒想到竟可在內地看到有歐洲特色的歌德式建築。教堂內注意不可以拍照錄像。  more »
