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. Given its visual prominence it boggles many minds over how this church survived Mao's cultural revolution. Today it is fully embraced as one of Tianjin's greatest buildings. Morning church services are held daily.
