"St Joseph's Church" St Joseph's Church - East - Wangfujing Cathedral Tip by mafi_moya

  St Joseph's church

This attractive church is quite a surprising sight along the shopping street of Wangfujing Dajie. The fact that it's still here is something of a miracle - in its 350 year lifespan it's been destroyed by earthquake, fire, war and was then shut down during the Cultural Revolution. It's now open to the public and one of Beijing's main churches (although it's only open very early in the morning).

Address: 74 Wangfujing Dajie
