What travelers say:

The Catholic Church and the mountain merge into one, the outline of the city directly under the Central Government, the red mountain green contrasted into a bright. The entire building plane is Latin cross shaped, fully embodies the aesthetic sense of asymmetric right symmetry in architecture.

Additional Information

Introduction

Sheshan Basilica is a prominent Roman Catholic church in Shanghai. Its name comes from its location on the western peak of Sheshan Hill, located in Shanghai's Songjiang District. The first church on Sheshan Hill was built in 1863. During the Cultural Revolution, Sheshan Basilica was severely damaged. The stained glass windows of the church, carvings along the Via Dolorosa, the statue atop the bell tower, and various other works of iconography were destroyed. After the end of the Cultural Revolution in 1976, the damage was gradually repaired. The Basilica's position on top of Sheshan Hill make for excellent photographs and contribute to its continued admiration.
