We popped in here, as I am sure many other visitors do, on the way up to finding the ruins of St Pauls; but I am so glad that we did as the ruins proved to be just that, with no spirituality at all, whereas this beautiful church was quiet and tranquil. Quite simple in its decor but with a... More

Constructed in 1587, and now can be found at Largo Sao Domingos, I was very happy to be able to come inside and say a prayer. Amidst the busy, touristry and commercial atmosphere outside, it is peaceful inside. And was able to hear a Portuguese mass last February.

One of the historical churches in Macau. Nice statues inside and impressive architecture. Not very crowded inside. Good for picture taking at the facade. Portuguese influence in Macau.

Walked past this beautiful church on the way to the Ruins of St Paul. I went in and it blew me away. I wanted to go back and go there to attend the mass - hopefully soon :)

My sister and I were not able to enter the church which is very famous with its grand interior because when we went there it was undergoing renovation. But locals told us that when it is open, many visit and pray inside the church.

Visited this church during our stay. It feels like it doesn't fit the city of Macau, almost out of place with it's style. The church is peaceful, nicely decorated and is beautiful to walk through. It's a quick stop as you explore the square.

Visited this catholic church post the visit to Ruins of St. Paul- its one of the photogenic churches from outside with yellow contrast walls. The interiors are quite simple and basic. Not to spend too much time on this- I took pictures and walked around.
