A quiet haven in the city

The catholic cathedral is near the historic area. Beautifully calm & tranquil inside. We took some time to sit & ponder here on our day trip to Macao.

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.

I was visiting this church with several friends from Hong Kong. I had spent the night before defending my belief in Catholicism and churches in general. I had a great discussion on Pope Francis, and the wonderful message that he is sending to the world.. My host were graciously walking with me to the various Catholics sites in the city.... More

Simply known as 'Cathedral', this member of the UNESCO - Historic City Centre of Macau can be found on the small Cathedral Square located south and east of Senado Square. What we like about Cathedral is the alter area, including the nice stained glassed windows. There is also a nice sacramental image of 'Our Lady of Fatima' found just to... More

The first building we visited at Senate Square being Roman Catholics. We saw fewer than 5 faithfuls inside you'd think if there were any tourists around. Nothing exceptional about the church unlike the beautiful Sto. Domingo Church nearby, a baroque Filipino-style church built by the Spanish Dominican friars in the mid 16th century. From Sto. Domingo, people converge walking down... More

I visited all the sites of Macau during one Saturday afternoon and this was by far biggest escape from the hoards of tourists. In fact, I was the only one at the Cathedral for about 20 minutes. I don't think the large tour buses can make it up the narrow streets and steep hills. It has great photo ops for... More

I attended Sunday services here and I found it memorable to be with the local Macau Catholic community. Although I did not understand a word of Chinese, I could follow because I found an English Mass guide (from the Philippines) on the pew. Regarding the church, the stained windows are beautiful. In the evening, the Church is well lighted to... More

If you happen to be passing by, then pop in - it is free. But it is (in comparison to many European styled Catholic cathedral) quite "protestant". Much is sealed off to tourists (it is an active operating cathedral). There are some reasonable stained glass windows, but the white stone structuring gives it a somewhat plain look, emphasised by the... More

C1 ( 2013.06.19 ) There was a big and beautiful place, but not more charming than another place. Compared to St.Domingo's church, there was only cathedral. I want to see more, example exhibition or history of cathedral, but I didn't find that. Beautiful, but just Cathedral..
