It is a beautiful church located near the senado square. It is small but very beautiful, you can smell the history there. I was not able to stay in a mass but just with the fact of being there is enough for realizing its greatness.

The church is clearly well looked after, and although a little garish from outside, it is pretty impressive inside. Definitely a nice church but nothing particularly blew me away.

The Church is ordinary from outside (though the green windows are pretty) but the interiors will make you gasp. it is grand and yet peaceful. the statues are beautiful and will leave you staring at them for many minutes. it is a place where you will want to sit and pray. the good part is that non-Christians are allowed inside....

The church is pretty. Also go to the small exhibition (entrance on the right side), it has lots of Christian exhibits.

As you face the altar of the church, head to the right and out of the doors to find a stair case up. This leads to a collection of religious artifacts, but also, on the third floor, to a room that is simple and beautiful. It's interesting to reflect on how the visitors from mainland China see the very Catholic... More

It's very simple but heartwarming. It's so different compare to church I've visited before (Sagrada Familia- Barcelona, several churches in Netherland, and some others in Italy). I personally like it and will come back if I have the chance cause I haven't really explored the back and second floor of the church :) Ps. I respect that there are several... More

about 5 min walk from Senado Square. Small but Magnificent church which is still actively used for church services or Macau Music Festival. Nearby houses the 5 story museum of Sacred Art (free entrance)

This oldest Catholic church in Macau dates from the 16th century, and has been beautifully restored. The green shutters and ocher walls, with white lacy trim, make it quite elegant. If you are a photographer as picky as I get about having photos level, be warned that the bottom and second levels of this church do not seem quite square... More

St. Dominic's Church was made of baroque design resembling many Spanish-era churches in the Philippines but departing from the original natural heritage look, it was painted yellow and white to conform with most buildings within the Historic City Centre which all painted to look fresh and attractive. Inside the church can be found a museum with collections of artifacts of... More
