This place deserves a short stop just to relax and enjoy both the church and the surroundings. It is a special architectonical style: tropical baroque, full of light and nice colors (yellow, blue and white).

Great place for crossing around Historical Area in Macau. Close with St. Augustine Square, so you can visit here after there. If you feel thirsty, get a line at Hui Lau Shan's stall & get a relax on the small garden there.

Attended on a Sunday expecting it to be opened but unfortunately it was closed either due to renovation (bamboo scaffolding present on much of the facade especially the front) or because it was Sunday. A door to a small chapel on the left hand side...More
