Hong Kong Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception

Hong Kong

This Gothic-revival cathedral was built in 1888 and financed largely by the Portuguese faithful from Macau. If taking the bus, alight at Caritas Centre on Caine Rd. It's set back from the road and dwarfed by high-rises; look for the signs.
