Qingdao Catholic Church, Qingdao

(3.9/5 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.
