Firstly make sure you catch a taxi to this location, taxis are no expensive and this church is on a steep hill. The view from the top was very good as well as seeing many weather houses. We were lucky when we were there as the nuns came out and sang, said some prayers all in English. The church inside... More

This church is amazing, although location slightly far from town and is little bit hard to reach via public transport. But the journey there is worth for the money I paid for. This place is peacefully without crow. Tourist rarely visit also because of the distance. This place does have a very good view of Macau city.

The church itself isn't extremely interesting other than the fact that it is a working Catholic church in the middle of Asia that is a few hundred years old. And in all truth, the church was not built to be a tourist attraction. It is definitely interesting though and you can see Portuguese architecture and a great view overlooking Macau.... More

Why the church called Our Lady of because it was built in Macau Seibo Yangshan (Penha hilltop). The Building next to the church was the bishop's house, in fact, the Church has been called Bishop Hill Chapel. In April 11,... More

It is real a good place for travel in Macau. The church is built on a mountain and I walked a not short ramp to get destination. There are several people taking wedding pictures. It is a very quiet and good scenery place. You can overlook Macau from here and saw many buildings like Macau Tower and Hotel Lisboa. The... More

We went into the church and sat on the bench. The sun sprinkled on the bench, on the status and... More
