iconic church in world
Dec 2019
An iconic Church which is out of ytourist hotpots. Making it best for taking photos. Sublime view of Macau. Only bad thing is that you need to walk uphill or taxi doesn't passby that place that often.

If you want the best view of Macau, this is it! It's not easy to get here though, unless you have a taxi driver who agrees to wait for you and take you back down hill. Otherwise, you will have a very slim chance of finding transportation other than walking. We were lucked out that a taxi driver was waiting for a couple having their wedding photos taken and he agreed to take us down before coming back for the couple. The views up here is terrific and not too many tourists probably due to the lack of transport.

Beautiful church at a vantage point of the city
Jan 2020
It is not a church which you can get to so easily. If you take public transport (bus), you have to do some amount of walking. Not too difficult if you are young (and have no kids or elderly to worry about). Google maps will get you there.

The church itself is simple, quaint. Perhaps not the most exciting church in the world, but nice enough. The scenery around the area is likely something worth going up this hill for.

Enjoy!

Quiet church at the hilltop
Dec 2019 • Couples
Didn't get in. I was not sure if they are open to any random visitor. It is located on a hill and it offers a great view of Macau and the surrounding area. Peaceful and quiet.

Really great place on hill top with spectacular views over part of Macau. The place open daily until 5PM but better be here before 430PM.

A must go to for a panoramic view of Macao
Oct 2019
Quite an exercise to walk up to the chapel but worth the effort. You can take a taxi there. Go either early in the morning or late evening.

Not the best church in Macau.....but probably the best view! Quite a walk up hill, not for the faint hearted.

Very nice site, wonderful views!

This church is relatively new, This church has replaced a previous one that was visited by travellers and sailors in anticipation to difficult journeys. The May 13 Virgin of Fatima procession finishes there. The church is located at the Pena hill. The church is nice and humble. Many locals get married here. you may see many couples getting their wedding photographs. The views of Macau from the courtyard are stunning. It is not one of the UNESCO sites, however, it is close to many. You can only get here by walking or car. Walking is very nice and if you are coming from the shore, on the way to the church, you may visit a nice and relaxing sightseeing area. The church is located in an upscale neighbourhood. Once you have visited, you can visit many of the UNESCO sites close by.

There is no entrance fee.

Beautiful View
May 2018 • Family
I feel like I'm in Europe for a while once I arrived here. The weather is pretty good, bright and sunny, there is a beautiful church here, and we can see couples in pre-wedding photo shoot here. And on our way to Macau attractions' we can meet this beautiful view, and of course the landmark of the city, Macau Tower.
