Former French Mission Building Reviews
Bangunan ini bisa kita lihat dari gedung HSBC. Terletak di atas bukit, bangunan ini cukup menarik untuk dilihat. Bangunannya berwarna merah bata dan bergaya kolonial. more »This building can be seen from the HSBC building. Located on a hill, the building is quite interesting to behold. The building is brick red and colonial style.

The location above the Queens Rd contributes perhaps also something about. It is one of the historic city. In addition to the French mission, there even the Government and courts have had their seat. It is located in a park-like setting with St John Cathedral. For more information, visit please joinourjourneys.
In the evening of November 23, 2017, I saw some colourful lights emitted from the premises. Like other photographers, I would not miss the rare opportunity to capture something that you would not expect to see. It was one of light shows of Hong Kong's Light Festival, transforming the fired- colour heritage building into a electronic, colourful artistic work!
The Former French Mission Building is a declared monument in Hong Kong and nice opportunity to view one of the few preserved buildings from the colonial period. Situated upon the elevated landscape on Battery Path, this structure was constructed in 1915, made of granite and red/orange brick in Neo-classical style. Today this building continues to be used by the local administration, serving as the Hong Kong Court of Appeals. While not a conventional tourist attraction, it does remain an interesting and attractive building to see and is a constant reminder of Hong Kong's early 20th century past. It is interesting to imagine this building at this elevated position, overlooking the Central district below all the way to Victoria Harbour - views that would have existed during the first half of the 20th century. Those days are long gone and those views long since blocked by the skyscrapers which dominate the Hong Kong Skyline today. If you stop by The Former French Mission Building in the Central District for a look around, it is also worth making way to St. John's Cathedral just a minute or two away. This is another declared monument worth seeing if you enjoy architecture and seeing historic buildings.
