A well preserved historical place at Coloane. You must pay a visit to St.Francois church at Coloane. They are restaurant outside the church that offer local snack and meals.Around the area are the old buildings. A great place to discover old macau.

Church is kind of small inside. There are some status of Jesus and St. Mary. The usual stuff. Make sure to take off your hats before entering.

If you are a K-Drama fan and loved Goong or Princess Hours, you would know why I visited the place. This is where the characters got married. This is where the princess went when they had a scandal in the palace. And the place in the series was soo nice you'd wish you could live there. I was quite disappointed... More

One cannot go to Macau and not visit the Chapel of St Francis Xavier. I was being adventurous and so caught a 26A public bus ( fare MOP 5.00 ) to the location which is on another island of Macau. You have to hang on whilst standing in the bus, if you don't get a seat. There are tons of... More

We first got to know this Portuguese style liitle church from the Korean drama, Goong. It was a beautiful & small church in Coloane, away from the busy Macau Peninsula. The church can be reached by taking buses such as 15,25, 26. it was not crowded as it was quiet weekday late afternoon. Definitely worth a visit when visiting Macau.
