The cathedral is in the shape of an asymmetrical cross which is huge. The church was destroyed by fire in 1859. For Catholics, the church is a sacred place.

Ohel Leah Synagogue

The Ohel Leah Synagogue was built in 1902 and it is also a first-class historical building. The building combines ancient Roman and Spanish architectural styles, and the synagogue is two-storey high. It is the first synagogue in Hong Kong. Observing outside the synagogue can make us feel how pious the Jews are to their own state religion. The symmetrical synagogue does not have many ornate decorations, which is very different from the Catholic church and exudes a calm beauty.

Address: 70 Robinson Road, Mid-Levels
