Catholic church

Pretty little church. It's a shame you can only take photos of its outside. Nice building and has a car park.

Nicely built church in the heart of Negombo... I have been to this church couple of times in 2012 and recently visited this church as I was heading to Negombo.

The St Mary's Church is a great Roman Catholic Church around Negombo, Sri Lanka. It is one of the best place to visit.

A must see if you're here and want to make negombo a worthwhile destination. I visited on a Sunday when it was full of worshippers and I was in shorts so I just took photos from outside.

We were staying an easy walk away from this famous Negombo church, and thought that we would like to visit. You don't need to be Roman Catholic to appreciate the gravitas of ecclesiastical history, but an eye for architecture is a definite plus! A Sunday afternoon worship with many of the locals is not necessary, unless you would prefer it... More

A wonderful building full of reverance and awe. A stroll along the old Dutch Canal, followed by a turn down a small street will bring you up to the front of this stunning structure.

Had a good mass and the environment around was quiet advocating to pray more. One of the best churches in Australia that you should visit.

This church is a little small , a little old with the long long history's building. Sometimes local person will celebrate inside with singing. the roof is decorated very beautiful. sometimes u will happen with some students' avtivities in here. Can visit within 30 minutes.

Thank Rocky L
