Overview

Even though Qingdao, China seems like an unlikely place to find classic neo-Gothic architecture this massive Catholic Church truly is a visual marvel. Built in 1934 by German architects in the shape of a Latin cross it ranks as the largest Catholic church in China. The bell tower stretches 60 meters into the sky making it one of Qingdao's most recognized landmarks. The church barely withstood the mayhem of China's Cultural Revolution. After re-opening in 1981, it continues to function today as a working church.
