About this place

Originally constructed nearly 400 years ago, Mochou Road Church is the oldest Catholic Cathedral in Nanjing and one of the municipal cultural relics. It is said that the church was built by an Italian churchman who was considered “the forerunner to promoting cultural exchanges between east and west”. During the Northern Expedition War in 1927 the church was seriously damaged. The Kuomintang spent ¥150,000 in 1928 to rebuild it. Its facade is relatively plain, but the vault framework and the 10th Century Romanesque decoration inside leave a lasting and positive impression.

Every Sunday morning around 7am they will have the worship, many Chinese Christians will come here and pray.
