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

I love this church, not only because of its personal meaning to me but also because of how it contributed to preserving Catholicism in the area.

It's so many years ago since I've been here, but I loved it and loved Macau! Easy to get to from Hong Kong.

Absolutely loved my visit to this church in Macau. The entire place was so calm and serene. I spent 2 hours exploring the entire Coloane area. Church architecture is simple but with good history behind it. Worth a visit if you are in Macau next time.

We spent a couple of hours exploring Coloane and this little church is an absolute gem to visit. Brightly painted in yellow, it entices you to enter and explore.
