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

This review is quite late. The St Dominic's Church is a lovely old church located within the historic centre of Macau. Just like most buildings it's ochre and white exterior paint gives it a fresh and neat look and the Baroque-style architecture is impressive. Many souvenir shops, restaurants and other commercial establishments can be found in this area.

The church is the oldest in Macau built in the late 16th century in the Baroque style. The beautiful yellow is stunning in the sun and transports you to Europe when walking through the square and church.

The surroundings of the church are beautiful and the church is lovely. It doesn't look old outside but it was very well maintained, religious or not, this is pretty and worth the walk.

Let me preface this review by saying that if you were expecting to see a grand church like the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris you’re out of luck. After a short walk from the ruins of St. Paul’s (approximately 400 meters or 438 yards), you arrive at the church on your right. When I first saw the building I didn’t... More
