Catholic Church (Xikai Church)
This church really stands out as architectural eye-candy. Constructed in 1917 by French Jesuit missionaries this Tianjin landmark features three massive green domes making it easy to spot miles away. The façade adds to the building's novel appearance with a series of orange and brown horizontal stripes.

Morning church services are held daily.
