Colourful church

Stands out more than the cathedral, due to the yellow inside and out, and the friendly atmosphere. Work a quick look or a sit-down break.

I spent two days walking around Macau and really enjoyed getting lost down side streets and getting off the main streets. This church was my favourite find off the main streets. I highly recommend visiting this church, I couldn't believe I was just around the corner from the crowds of Largo de Senado, it was a quiet, peaceful area and... More

It s another church along the Heritage Trail. It is not as touristy due to it being farther away from Central or Sentado Square. It is good to learn about the history of Portuguese catholic influence on Macau, but to me, the churches all seem similar, so brief stops are all that is needed.

I first saw this little church about 15 years ago on one of my many visits to the former Portuguese enclave. Initially I thought it was, from side view, an old warehouse. When I saw it from the front I realised it was a church,. Being somewhat of a church buff (it doesn't matter what religion) I entered the church... More

If you approach the the Senado Square from the Lisboa or grand Lisboa ruins of St.Paul's is on the right hand side while St.Augustine's Church is on the left although a small walk away. Other attractions close by are the Dom Pedro V Theater, St. Augustine's Square, St. Josephs Seminary & Church & the Sir Robert Ho Tung Library. This... More

Make it a point to see some of the older churches in Macau. They span centuries, but still have active congregations. The interiors are always interesting and this one in no exception. The square outside is quiet compared to other more heavily traveled areas of Macau. A nice respite.

This review is quite late. The St. Augustine’s Church is one of the less visited churches in the city. It is located in the serene St. Augustine's Square which is somehow hidden. My niece and I had the entire place to ourselves when we visited. Other attractions nearby are the Dom Pedro Theatre, Sir Robert Ho Tung Library, St. Lawrence's... More

St. Augustine is a Catholic church found on the quaint little square by the same name in the Historic City Centre of Macau, no more than a 5 minute walk from the heavily visited Senado Square. Unlike St. Dominic's Church on nearby Senado Square, you will find far fewer visitors at St. Augustine Church, which was originally built in 1591... More

We went into St. Augustine's Church since it is along the Macau Heritage Trail. It took me some time to figure out what was strange about that church, until I noticed the floor tiles. Somehow they give the church a somewhat strange feel in my opinion. There were a fair amount of visitors. Also volunteer guides would give you the... More

We stopped by St. Augustine church this past weekend, while visiting other UNESCO attractions in the area of St. Augustine Square. This church is a nice little stop but not that different to the other Catholic style churches in the Historic Centre of Macau. It is noticeably smaller than both St. Lawrence and the famous St. Dominigo's church near Senado... More
