  • 算是徐家汇的地标,整个建筑显得很庄严肃穆,平时是免费对外开放的,每个周末有礼拜有不少外国人回去,像很多教堂一样墙体镶嵌彩色玻璃,文艺复兴时期彩色玻璃,阳光透过照进来是色彩斑斓的很美 
  • Being a Catholic and went to a party, we were able to see only the top of the under construction. Not too too bad. . Not-to-OK my fault. Now construction is over? Ends with a period, the Corporation is certainly not nawaissdeon. .

  • Unfortunately for us the church is currently undergoing maintenance/renovation and isn't open to the public.

  • 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.
  • llove it
  • 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。
