Only one of me, St. Joseph's Church, kneeling in front of the altar in the empty and quiet church, drew light from all the windows of the voice dome and threw it on the pillar. Perhaps I did not feel guilty or benevolent enough not to ask for forgiveness, nor did I hope to go to heaven. Now I only know that I hope to have a little chance in this world to transcend this time when the earthly world is eternally empty by time. Infinite baptism inspired by truth, goodness and beauty
St. Joseph's Monastery, right next to the Hotung Library, has a green exterior wall. It's small and fresh, but it's not open to the outside world. It can only look at the exterior. Go ahead, not far, St. Joseph's Cathedral is open to the outside world. Walking up the stairs is a pale yellow building, although not very spectacular, but a careful tour, you will find that both the internal structure and decoration are very delicate, I personally think the interior decoration is the best looking Macau church. This historic building, with its extremely gorgeous Baroque style architecture, especially the offending dome inside, is sincerely beautiful, the color matching, sculpture, lighting, all reflect its exquisite. After visiting St. Joseph's Abbey and Church, you can stroll around the nearby Fulong New Street. It has also become a tourist attraction, with numerous hand-mail shops attracting many tourists. Although St. Joseph's Monastery is not open, if there are regrets, the St. Joseph's Monastery's Cathedral should not be missed, it is worth seeing.
St. Joseph's Monastery and Church were built by Jesuits and were called St. Joseph's Tower at that time. After 30 years of operation, the courtyard has been completed one after another. The entrance gate of the monastery is located in Sanbazai Street. The entrance of the monastery is in line with the entrance of the church. The size of the temple is second only to St. Paul's, so the Chinese call it "Sanba Zai".
St. Joseph's Monastery and Church are located near the front of the hill of Macao and are world cultural heritage sites. The three buildings of the monastery, the church and the Hodong Library converge. The monastery is light green in appearance, and the cathedral, like other churches, is yellow and white in color. This may be a unique scene in Macau. It mainly believes in Catholicism and serves as a base for training religious personnel in Macau. The monastery was founded in 1728, second only to St. Paul's. The church was decorated with stone and rice, and the convent was closed to the public. Monastery, the temple as a whole is Baroque architectural style, the main hall has Latin cross-shaped. It is decorated with a statue of St. Joseph's Master Protector. Here is the podium. You can see the wooden spiral poles. There is a bell tower on both sides of the top floor of the church. The top of the tower is made of glazed tiles. Most of the tourists just look here and leave. The whole journey is only 20 minutes.
This is the place of practice left by the Jesuit Society (IHS) to the Portuguese and Chinese people, and its significance is extraordinary. The monastery is not open to the outside world, but it can be visited. The monastery is a cream-colored exterior wall with white patterns and dark green windows. Although it does not have the magnificent beauty of Rose Hall and Fengshun Hall on the outside, it has a beautiful Baroque dome, a luxurious pipe organ, a golden spiral column, beautiful mural inscriptions and reliefs under the altar "Last Supper".
St. Joseph's Cathedral is a magnificent Baroque style. It was only after returning to the mainland that St. Francisco's humerus and hands were hidden. He was the first Jesuit to preach in the Far East and was praised as an Eastern apostle. The skull is regarded as an important cultural relic of the Eastern Catholic Church. Unfortunately, it has not been paid attention to, and the strategy before going is not detailed enough. There are small museums beside the temple, which display Christian holy images, costumes and so on. After visiting St. Joseph's Abbey and Church, you can stroll around the nearby Fulong New Street. It is also called "Red Window Door" and is marked by red doors and windows of two-storey buildings on the whole street. The Fulong New Street complex is the most complete preserved Chinese green building complex in Macao and the only "fossil" of the green building culture.
There are many world heritage sites, including the first Western-style University in China (St. Paul College), the first Western-style theatre, the first modern lighthouse on the coast of China, temples with Lingnan style, courtyards of rich merchants in the late Qing Dynasty and so on. Churches are the most popular.
