Lots of photo opportunities around the bishop's house (which sits next to the Cathedral) and the Cathedral itself but we could not access the Cathedral itself which was a shame!

The Portuguese have left a legacy in Macau like this beautiful Cathedral. The architectural design is beautiful with the building's exterior a certain to attract the camera. However there are more historic churches in Macau.

Yes, the casinos are worth a trip, but don't miss the few historic sights in central Macau like this 19th century church. Not as historic as 16th century St Dominic though but they are virtually 4 min away of each other by foot.

Interesting Cathedral with daily ongoing mass services done in Cantonese mostly, but also available in English during weekends. On Holy Week, part of the religious ceremonies include walking around the Senado square with the Fire Department's band playing during the interesting procession. Very solemn and uncommon

Another relic in Macau built during the Portuguese occupation of the state. This structure speaks for itself.

Since the only church familiar to tourists is the St. Dominic, this place is not frequented by people, many dont know the way going here, but actually the cathedral's location is just opposite to the way going to St. Paul ruins. When I went inside, there was a solemn and exclusive christening ceremony of a Portuguese family. The edifice of... More

It's not as fancy as other cathedrals but still has an imposing grace. There are signs inside warning tourists to stay away, so sit down and pretend to pray if you need a break, and be careful if you try to take photos.

The Cathedral of Macau's architecture is not as impressive as our churches here in the Philippines but it possesses beauty in its own simple way.

I walked by here, saw the cathedral, popped my head in, looked around and left unimpressed. I enjoyed, in a way, that it was simple looking and not as opulent as some of the Catholic Churches can be sometime. But that is on basis of a more of theological platform that probably should be left out from this review.
