Also called the Cathedral of Our Saviour, this august cathedral is one of Běijīng’s four main churches and the only one located within the former grounds of the Imperial City. Built in 1887, the cathedral served as a factory warehouse during the Cultural Revolution. Despite being covered in gaudy grey, flaking paint, the cathedral is worth visiting, especially for those keen to glimpse the growing stature of Christianity in China.
