We expected the typical Spanish overwhelming colonial style of church with all its glamour and details; what we found was pretty straight forward; but still worth visiting and worshipping about those who are not amongst us anymore as well as those we love. You

This church was first founded in 1587 and has a long and interesting history, and definitely worth a visit. The bell tower at the rear of the building is now used as a small museum.

A grand Church located at St Dominic's Square in the Historic City Center of Macau. The architecture of the Church is excellent. Also there is a 3-storey museum beside the Church. Most of the exhibits in the Museum reveal that those are made in Goa (India). Proud to be Indian and glad to know that India has its name embarked... More

Just like Senado Square, this area of Macau seems to be going under renovations, as scaffolding covered the whole facade of this building. We were unable to see this iconic building in its glory.

The church is located on the main street and the design is similar to most churches in that era. However, there is a museum on the 2nd and 3rd story for tourist to head in and see all the relics of that era.

St.Domnics Church is one of the Oldest churches located in the heart of Macau for Roman Catholics in Macau built by Spanish priests in late 16th century with a mix of European and Macanese architecture . I visited the Church around 2 PM the church is itself in its grandeur. I visited the Treasure of Sacred Art Museum that is... More

Since Macau is dominated by Portugal and they bring in Catholicism, later on they build up the churches and finally went they back to Portugal, they leave it here and it is really beautiful, it is free of charge for people to go inside and it is part of Macau's Portuguese history. If you are catholic, I really suggest you... More

This is also right around the corner of Ruins of St. Paul along with all the other tourist spots in Macau. Soooo after purchasing your 30boxes of Almond 🍪 take a walk along the Historic Centre of Macau and you'll see this beautiful church along the way. Be sure to stand in front of the church with your many bags... More

This church is definitely on the list of must see historical sites while in Macau. It's apart of Macau's Portuguese history. The church is beautiful and in a more Portuguese part of town. It's also close to some other must see sites. This area gets very busy so the earlier you can get there the better.
