Macau church

Lovely church on a hill with great views of the city. Simple interior. Worth the climb to the top. Try the gardens at the side for some verdant solitude.

The chapel is located on a hill, hence if you have no car, be prepared for a steep walk up ths hill. The chapel is small yet has an amazing view over to Taipa, to Macau Tower and the casino area at Macau including Wynn, MGM and One Central. Great for photo shootings which is being used by wedding couples... More

Lovely place and you get a great panoramic view of Macau as well. However it does take effort to walk up the hill!

If you plan to be in the area near Lilau Square to see Mandarin's House or St. Lawrence's Church, it is possible to squeeze in the Penha Hills on your visit (in fact you could also add A-Ma temple and Moorish Barracks too if you are ambitious— it is walkable — but a bit tiring in the heat). Although the... More

Cool old church--it is very plain inside but pretty, and has a great view. The flower gardens below are also very pretty.

Our Lady of Penha Church is a modest church and has a rather simple interior and exterior, making it a lower priority visit for those interested in seeing more attractive churches in Macau or those which are included in the Macau World Heritage collection. However, visits to the church can be enjoyable as it is perched upon a hill, providing... More

Actually did not enter the church as the doors are closed. The church was on top of a hill and therefore, offers great views of macau. Lots of photos opportunities.

You will see the fantastic view from the church, Don't miss. As the church located on the hill, You have to walk up the hill, It's of course tried but the view you will get is worth, I recommend everyone to visit here but I guest it's not good for family with a baby or children.

Confession: We had a complete tour of this Macau attraction a decade ago, but on this trip had to settle for an exterior look at it due to a road closure that prevented our tour from getting all the way up to it. Having said that: The current chapel is an 1837 reconstruction of a 1622 structure that was again... More

Getting to the church requires bit of a climb but it is totally worth it. The chapels in Macau are not as grand as the ones in Europe but are worth the visit once you are in the city. Also it is located at a 20 min. walk from the Senado Square so you can visit it. The church is... More
