  • Unfortunately it isclosed for repairs but the lady at nearby tourist office was helpful. You feel transported back in time. Was able to attend Mass in English on a Sunday in the nearby diocese chapel.  more »
  • Xu Jia Hui Cathedral Chapel located immediately, out of the House located in the East China metropolis of Shanghai subway line 9 issue, line 11 line 1 Xujiahui station exit 3 is the Catholic Church. Planted grass in the front yard, beautiful brick form the profound sense of the dry in the North and South has two bell towers. High ceiling room heaters to warm up in the solemn atmosphere was burnt. Peaceful feeling.

  • 特地搭地鐵轉了幾次線才到達,怎料這座教堂在進行大型翻新工程!把整座教堂用圍版密封著,只看到塔尖!亦不讓人進入。很失望!  more »

  • Was unlucky to come during the renovation time, and in a late evening. Managed to see only the chapel inside the Rev's chaplaincy. Wish i would travel back to this place on another day and see the church in its full glory, but sad that i'm thousands of miles away....!
  • Came here with my mother-in-law for mass. Great service and all but kept getting distracted by the tourists coming in and gawking. Go take your wedding picture somewhere else!
  • Beautiful cathedral, liturgies are hit and miss, though.

  • 徐家汇圣依纳爵主教座堂,一度又称天主之母堂,俗称徐家汇大堂或徐家汇天主堂,位于中华人民共和国上海市徐汇区蒲西路158号。该教堂始建于清光绪二十二年(1896年),1960年时,该教堂成为天主教上海教区的主教座堂。 清咸丰元年(1851年),法国天主教耶稣会教士南格主持修建。由英国建筑师道达(英语:W.M.Dowdall,一译陶特凡)设计。这座新教堂是中国境内第一座完全按照西方建筑风格建造的哥特式建筑教堂,曾有“中国教堂之巨擘”、“远东第一大教堂”之称。 2013年3月5日被公布为全国重点文物保护单位。
