I have been to many churches, but this church is a little bit different, since it is built fully with stone. The design is gothic, good for people take photos.

Located in the maze of old buildings with small shops. Old but Well maintained clean building. Unfortunately we arrived after the place was closed at 11:30 and we could not go back to enter inside in the afternoon.

The construction is interesting but nothing so special! And the code dress and control in the church is extreme. La misa en inglés no se entiende muy bien, y en verano y primavera hace DEMASIADA CALOR!

This Church is an unexpected, but very welcoming place to visit. After 25 years, it was finally completed in 1888 [the last three digits are very important to many Chinese (in China and abroad)]. The twin spires of the building is very unusual in Guangzhou......More
