Beautiful little church in Coloane just by the waterfront. Very colourful and pretty. Unfortunately I didn't go inside at the time and I regret it now. Well worth a quick visit.

The size is compact, cant compare with the old town church. If you just want to come for foto shooting, u might be disappointed to its scare and internal decoration, btw, its easy to find.

I didn't manage to visit the interior, as I was on my way to Ruins of St. Paul's and was passing by. But I did stop to admire the exterior and I love the colours of this cathedral so much. Definitely not your usual expectations...More

I have seen quite a few churches in my life. This is hands down one of the most colorful exteriors that I have seen. The interior is not as ornate but so light filled.

Located at the bottom of the hill of the Ruins of St Paul, this church looks like a wedding cake. Worth a visit.

This is the window to the area's Christian past. The church is well maintained and located in the heart of old European quarters of the city. Approach roads are narrow and mostly one-way traffic is allowed. So be ready to rub shoulders in the crowd....More
