This colonial historic church is a nice landmark. However, the façade looks nicer than the inside. But it is still worth to visit.

This church is located right in the heart of the city centre and is one of Macau's finest and colourful with a bright yellow facade with green doors and shutters. Founded in 1587 by three Spanish Dominican priests who originally came from Acapulco in Mexico, this church is also connected to the Brotherhood of Our Lady of the Rosary. It... More

Macau is a small city, but it is recently developed into a nice tourist area to visit, besides the casinos this is a good place to visit. It is a bout a half hour walk from the Grand Lisben Casino. It has the Portuguese look in the area reminding the history when governed by the Portugal for the past decades.

The church is a real peace of history, founded in 1587 by the Spanish Dominican Priests. Its is worth a long visit. Close by is the ruins of St Paul's and of cause Senado Square.

The church looks magnificent, nothing really special but it is worth taking a photo. It is also near the lagro de senado & st. paul's ruins.

Do take some time to appreciate its architectural, historical and religious values and info. Every corner of this structure is "photogenic". If you have more time, do enter the prayer hall for prayers, enjoy peaceful and calm atmosphere.

Visited Senado, visited St. Dominic Church. I came into this Church and I appreciated everyone there to keep silent for the prayers. I did not spend long time inside, I liked the architecture style. It's so different to outside building, where we faced Senado area crowded by tourist :) :)

Frankly speaking, I did not know it was St Dominic's Church until I left Macau and am now back home. It was while posting some first hand experiences here at tripadvisor when I saw this very familiar looking building that I know it was IT. LOL! When in Macau, I saw it while on my way back from the northern... More
