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
