Cool Church, we had to visit this place since this is the only catholic church near senado square. impressive architecture, open to the public with guards securing the church. Small entrance, traditional pews. You cant miss it enroute to St Pauls Ruins, near bossini shop

In the chapel courtyard under the marble statue of Our Lady of Lourdes, we had a panoramic view of Macau, the inner harbor and the bridges to Taipa. The stairs lead down to a picturesque grotto. The courtyard and the grotto are open daily from 9:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. but the chapel closes at 4:30 p.m. If you have... More

If you are on a budget and does not want to pay extra to go up the Macau Tower, might as well go here in Penha as this is located on top of a hill making it a perfect viewing deck overlooking Macau peninsula and Taipa.

Our Lady of Penha is one of the most beautiful churches in Macau and, combined with a bird's eye view of the sea and Macau Tower, it makes a great place to visit.

Bird's eyed view of Macau Even you have to walk up the steep hill before reaching the Penha hill. Trust me. This is the great place. You can see all area of Macau peninsula including urban areas and widely south china sea. I had seen many pre-wedding couples came to this lovely and romantic place.

Quite a walk up the steep hill to this church but fully worth the view. This is slightly away from the other historical sites hence may have to take a bus or taxi to this area. There are 2 benches on the grounds that you can sit and rest a bit and enjoy the view of the Macau Tower, and... More

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
