In the historic area. Very pretty church with a lot of history. Worth going to on a walking tour. Calm oasis in the city.

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

The church doesn't really look "old" from outside because the administrators are really maintaining this place. The architectural design and display inside however will tell how rich the history is. If you want to take good pictures, try to arrive early, like 7am, avoiding big crowds. 15 to 30-minute visit should be sufficient. Don't forget to include world peace in... More

St. Domingo's Church is a simple yet elegant historical landmark in the middle of Senado Square. It's a small church beautifully showcasing European architecture. The interior is very solemn and lovely as well. It 's very similar to many old churches in the Philippines. When in Macau, pass by St. Domingo's Church for a short, quiet prayer.
