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

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.
