Beautiful little Church

A must see. This is a lovely quaint little Portuguese style church. The interior is hand painted and colourful. Worth the visit.

We first got to know this Portuguese style liitle church from the Korean drama, Goong. It was a beautiful & small church in Coloane, away from the busy Macau Peninsula. The church can be reached by taking buses such as 15,25, 26. it was not crowded as it was quiet weekday late afternoon. Definitely worth a visit when visiting Macau.

A Scenic and lovely place in the nice and quiet 'old' Macau. This is the way the Portuguese felt when the were here. If you like the history this is a must visit small town.

The church is small, but there are lots of things there which is very informative. There is a litte museum which has some interesting items.

If you are in Macau you absolutely MUST visit Coloane Village. This is a quaint little district with so much history. The church is lovely and it feels like you have stepped back in time, with a strong Portuguese influence in the architecture and the tranquility of the area. There are lovely little shop houses and old cobbled alley ways... More
