Reviews about Hongjialou Cathedral

耶路撒冷的牛牛

5/5
Reviewed on 27 Nov, 2018

Late autumn is early winter, when autumn and winter meet, it is most suitable to go out for a walk. This time, I came to Jinan, the capital of spring. Speaking of Jinan, I believe most people will think of Baotu Spring for the first time. There are 72 springs all over the city. In fact, apart from the spring city, Hong Jialou Catholic Church hidden in Jinan residential area is a must-go place. [History] The Catholic Church of Hongjialou was built by foreigners. In the late Qing Dynasty, there were many missionaries in all parts of China. The place where the gospel was spread was called the church. It is said that the church was built by Germans, or Austria, or foreigners anyway. This church is not as famous in China as Xujiahui Church in Shanghai, Shishi Church in Guangzhou and Xikai Church in Tianjin, but it is absolutely famous in foreign countries. So it is also called the first of the three cathedrals in China. The other two are in Fuzhou and Huzhuang. I'm afraid many Jinan locals have never been to Hongjialou Church. [Coordinates] This special magnificent church is located in the vicinity of Hongjialou Station, Garden Road, Lixia District. The surrounding area is not particularly busy, and there are still a lot of traffic routes. However, after getting off, we need to go through several shopping malls to get in. It is suggested that buses come in. After all, there are not many parking places nearby. The Catholic Church is a Gothic building with twin towers. In fact, it is the same as the stone chamber in Guangzhou. The main door has three middle doors which are the largest, but usually only the left door is opened. In addition to the main door, the rear part is also very beautiful. There is also a small square in front of the main building. Many people come here to take wedding photos. There are many Biblical statues on the square, such as Jesus Shepherd, and the Holy Mountain. There are two angels outside the gate. [Inside the building] Through the thick church door, you can see the spacious space inside. There are many seats. It is said that it can accommodate up to 1000 people. At the same time, there are different stories on different windows in the church. Besides, there are many candlesticks. In front of the candlestick, there is a small house confessing to the priest in the seating aisle. Look up and see the gorgeous smallpox, everywhere is full of elegance, came without Mass, so quite quiet. [Open time] Open time is from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Every day. If you come here, you can arrange the time. It's free to enter. It's more humanized than the church in Qingdao.
