“Holy Throne of Lord”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013 via mobile

Believe all the good reviews because this place is magnificent, no gimmick needed. Doesn't matter what your belief is, St. Ignatius Cathedral should be on your to-go list, on the top! I personally have never been to a church that smells this good, like the air was filled with roses (I don't know about summer's scent)

“Good Sunday mass in English”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

If you are catholic and like to go to mass while in Shanghai, on Sunday there is an English language mass at 12:00 afternoon. Very popular with expats, tourists and Chinese locals, so although a very big church, it got quite crowded on this cold winter Sunday. You can get there by subway line 1 or 9, station Xujiahui, exit 3. It is surprising to find such a classic big church in Asia. However, for European standards this church is not that old (100 years) and therefore not so interesting as a tourist sight, unless you are already in the neighbourhood. The gardens in front make for a nice rest with a large Costa Coffee immediately left of the grounds.
