  • 教堂已有一百多年的歷史了,是主教堂座。典型的哥特建築,就在徐家匯,鬧中取靜的地方,內部很漂亮,尤其是靠近頂部的彩繪玻璃。但從前年開始一直在修繕,彌撒只能在教堂外的主教府內的小教堂舉行。期待修繕完成的那天。  more »
  • 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 »

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.
