Closed for CNY but impressive to look at. Great area for walking, we also saw the mosque nearby and spent some time in a cafe next to the cathedral.

Attractive, pious and ancient. This is a Roman Catholic Church, built of stone. It is a tourist attraction for both Chinese locals and foreigners. The stain glass windows tell amazing stories.

The church was closed during my visit, but there were over 100 people here, mostly taking photographs. A solemn place of worship. It appears that most of the renovations and restorations are complete.

Stunning church, aka the Notre Dame of East Asia. Worth a visit -- one of only 4 all granite gothic churches in the world. Church service in progress when we visited so we couldn't really walk freely thru the entire church. Free entry.

Interesting visit to this historic cathedral in mainland China. There was a briefing about the Cathedral and the origins of Christmas to the Chinese visitors inside when we visited. Do explore the tiny garden behind but be prepared for the stench coming from the public toilets.
