It is a historical and nice place. I participated the mass on Saturday night. It was a good time to thanks God with the people of Guangzhou. There is Chinese and English Mass. The building is classic and beautiful. It was a little bit hot as no air-conditioner service. It is located a MTR station nearby.

It is a beautiful cathedral. Easy to find from either the YiDe Lu or HaiZhu square metro stops. I tried to attend an English service while I was there but there were so many tourists it was distracting. Those that were helping keep the tourists away from those attending the service assumed that I was just a tourist and were... More

I lived in Guangzhou when i am still young and my primary school is near this church, so i had pretty much more times to get in touch this church. It looks so splendid that you can feel strong Western religious atmosphere. Though this church stands in the downtown, when you are approaching the church it will be silent and... More

We went to a church service here. This is a very beautiful old church. Open air so can be very hot in the summer. Only had fans on when we were there. Was very crowded so get there a little early. Many different nationalities show up for service. Many beggars on the way in and out of Church.

I visited this attraction in July it was crazy hot that day, sadly I didn't go in or learn any of the history of the place, so I will have to go back to get a better understanding. It's easy to find as it's close to the metro stop Yide.

Beautiful church in the heart of Yuexiu district in Guangzhou. It's kind of bizarre to see such an European construction in the middle of a very Chinese area in Guanghzou. Definitely worth a visit!

Arrived in China last year for work and have visited the cathedral several times by myself when I have had the opportunity. They have an English mass at 3:30pm on Sundays, with a wide range of people from various nationalities. This is not the only time to visit, you should try and take a trip there if you can just...
