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.

We have long felt underwhelmed by St. Francis Xavier Church considering the significant of the patron saint for which the church is named and the lovely location of this building in Coloane village. From the outside, St. Francis Xavier is nice church to see, like many others in Macau. It reminds of a small version of St. Dominic's at Senado... More

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.

Small place full of serenity, the church (or rather chapel) contain holiest relics of catholic church in Far East. Beautifully renovated, and is again the main adornment of Coloane's central square. The painting of central nave is very simple, but its photos became highest-rated from all my travel.

The church is a very simple and small architecture. All elements are simple but the colour is rich. Try to spend few minutes and sit inside, you should have spiritual peaceful. The front piazza have mosaic stone floor and a Memorial but Chinese restaurant set large table to occupy space, I think coffee shop and small coffee table are suitable... More

This is a great Church, the location if you not carefully you will not find it because inside Coloane area (there is a lot of boutique, cafe, store, and anything else you want to buy cheaper). Church is otentik and beautiful. Especially if you go at night, you will find a great scenery. This is my first trip to Macau... More

The chapel is now under renovation, and facade is fully covered. Entrance is closed also. If this chapel is only one reason for visiting Coloane, just cancel. But fortunately, there are lot things to do around

This is one of the many churches on the historic route. Everytime you enter a church you will be amazed that you are still in China. It sure feels like Europe.
