With its neo-Gothic style and vibrant red brick exterior, Xujiahui Catholic Church stands out from its greyish monolith surroundings. Built by French Jesuits at the beginning of the 20th century, the church stands as one of the biggest Roman Catholic churches of the Shanghai diocese, accommodating up to 2500 devotees. Inside, the high Gothic arches and ornate stone columns dominate, with colorful stained glass creating a mystical ambiance. Information boards offer details about the church and its masses in English.

  • Unfortunately for us the church is currently undergoing maintenance/renovation and isn't open to the public. 
  • This place looks out of place and seems a building that should be in Europe , the building is stunning walked past it many times while there 
  • I have never been inside but from outside it always admired me. Spectacular view and good to walk around 
  • llove it
  • 宏大的建筑
  • 相比国际礼拜堂,建筑是比较宏伟壮观,但还是少了些许人气!
  • 好像只要静静的在它面前站一会儿,就能得到祝福。
  • Opening hours: week 1 through week 5 9:00 – 16:30; per week 6 9:00 - 12:30, 14:00 - 16:30; Sunday 14: 00 – 16:30
