Nice big church with colorful and well maintained interior. Right on the main road, so it is hard to miss if you are near Tianyi Square
Every time I go to Ningbo, I will see this very sensational Catholic Church. The architecture is so distinctive! (Although I'm a complete layman) This time I came here to make a card and take a photo, which is really interesting...
The Catholic Church of Ningbo Yaohang Street, that is, the Virgin mother of Yaohang Street, was built in Ningbo by the French priest at the end of the Ming and early Qing Dynasties, and it was built in the Romanesque and Gothic style. The church is 51 meters north and south, 22 meters east and west, 31 meters high in the lobby spine, 66 meters high in the bell tower and 6 meters high on the top. A stainless steel cross of 4m wide, the plane of the church is cross, and it is combined with the second floor of the priest's building, and the actual capacity of the church is about 2000 people (seat 1000 seats). The front gate of the church is made of 80 tons of granite, the hall is decorated with granite, the whole door and window are painted glass (non-stained glass, less than 5 years old), the round window of the lobby is decorated with various sacred bodies, and the church door and window are decorated with biblical stories. The 80-square-meter semicircular arch on the top of the altar is depicted with the coronation of the Virgin Mary of the Holy Spirit and is supported by five small semicircular arches, symbolizing the unity and unity of the Church. The second floor roof of the lobby is covered with blue stone glaze, surrounded by blue stone railings, and decorated with stone, with a large momentum, and simple elegant.
It is quite characteristic, located in the center of the city, and convenient transportation. It is quite interesting to go and see.
It was fun, especially Christmas, it was people
