Today's second stop is European style, from the railway station by subway, transfer to Line 6 to Delu station. At the exit of the subway, it was found that both sides of the street were Xiguan Arcade Buildings. There was a large wholesale market, mainly nuts and condiments. A turn, it appears in my sight, this is one of the buildings I must see in Guangzhou, has been longing to see the real it - Shishi Sacred Heart Cathedral. The small square in front of the church, the flower beds, the buildings on both sides and the hanging flower basket all set off the largest Gothic Church in Asia. Unfortunately, we will still be cloudy, with a calm heart, step by step towards it. It is said that its night scene is more beautiful, with rows of arcades flashing lights around the church in the dark on Yide Road. It's perfect, 360 degrees without dead ends. The church is bigger than I expected, and many people are shooting it with UAVs. We were going on Easter and there were many prayers in the church, reminding everyone to enter the church quietly and not to use flashlights.
Beautiful sacred place....had a great time the architecture is so beautiful and just looks amazing.
The Cathedral of Sacred Heart in Stone Chamber is the largest cathedral of Catholicism in Guangzhou diocese and one of the largest Gothic buildings in China and one of the four whole-stone Gothic church buildings in the world. It was rebuilt by the invaded British forces in the late Qing Dynasty and Guangzhou in 1863. The spire of the cathedral was 58.5 meters high and made of granite. It was extraordinary momentum and forced directly into the Cathedral of Sacred Heart in Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. Visitors are allowed to visit the church during non-Mass time, but all the elements of the composition of the Gothic church are forbidden to be photographed inside the church. The arch-shaped dome-clasped window and the exquisite stained glass in the spire Hall of the two-bell tower with both early architectural style and middle and late architectural style are all the fascination of the Stone Chamber Sacred Heart Church.
The first sight of the Shishi Sacred Heart Cathedral in Guangzhou has a very shocking feeling. For the first time, seeing such a magnificent church, Notre Dame Cathedral in the Far East is well-known. The church can be visited, but the staff will remind visitors to keep quiet. There are probably several wholesale markets outside the church. Many people come and go with trailers and bags.
Guangzhou is one of the most beautiful churches. The greatest feature of the church is that it is made of blood and money. The whole body of the church is made of beautiful painted glass made of granite, which is transported back by air from abroad. Thank the state for the importance attached by the Party to the protection of cultural relics so as not to be destroyed by ignorant human beings. If you can't appreciate its beauty, it's okay. ~You can compare Singapore churches (see figure 9, figure 10) to see how simple Singapore churches are. They're just painted with a layer of paint. The architectural style is basically the same

Guangzhou Shishi Sacred Heart Cathedral with twin towers, stone chambers, stained glass, Gothic architecture, Chinese elements, architectural art and religious culture. 4. In the construction of the whole Church of Shengxin Cathedral in Shishi, Guangzhou, glutinous rice tung oil was used instead of cement, which was waterproof and firm. The dome stones were also pierced with iron branches through the two holes in the dome. This made the water outlet of the church roof stronger. It also changed into the shape of Chinese lion. The floor also changed the stone blocks originally designed into the large-step bricks in Guangdong Province, which made it more moisture-proof. Well, there are also Cantonese wood carvings on the door. 5.

I have heard about Shishixinxin Cathedral for a long time and finally decided to leave. It's about 300 meters from Exit B of Yide Road Metro Station. Recently I heard that it is to repair and increase internal learning, which is not open on weekdays. 8.20 Sunday Mass, you can go in, but you can't go out during the Mass. After 12:00 noon, you can take pictures at 14:00 (or 15:00). It's taller inside than outside, and it can be pretended to be the hhhhhh of the church in Europe, but there's not much fun around the church, but there are a lot of people.
As one of the four stone-structured Gothic church buildings in the world, the stone chamber is really exquisite. It has Harry Potter's Hogwarts instant vision [pleasure] [pleasure]. The most important thing is that it does not buy tickets to wear short skirts and refund tickets like Quanzhou's Clean Temple. Instead, it has prepared a lot of open-style tie skirts for you, which is very convenient.
It's very convenient to go. Buses and subways can choose to go on the third day of the New Year. There are many people exploding. But there are staff commanding the scene. They don't think there are many chaotic typical Gothic buildings. They are free and open. The church is very big. It's worth visiting. Special reminder that when taking beautiful pictures inside, don't use flash, it will destroy cultural relics! My husband and I were criticized by the staff when we flipped through the photos. The church is a place of confession. Don't play with mobile phones. Put them away quickly. Feel the solemn atmosphere. You're right. The coconut at the door is good. You can try it.
