Cathedral, Macau

3.9
Stop by the simple Cathedral to enjoy some peace and quiet away from large groups of tourists. The interior is unobtrusive, with not much in the way of grandiose decorations besides the large stained glass windows surrounding the altar. The church is actively frequented by the community, with Mass services held in English on the weekends. Unwind at the benches of the cathedral square out front, where you can also find a small fountain and a few murals depicting the history of the town.

  • Walk from Senado square 5 minutes?, the Plaza in front of the Church was embellished with beautiful Azulejos, lots of local people were relaxing on the bench. Mind was trying to guard this sign is, please do not enter in tourism. Are not allowed.

  • Small church (wouldn't say cathedral) that makes interesting backdrop for picture. Literally left the wife and kids in the car, popped out for a picture and popped back in. Worth the 5 minutes.  more »
  • A small cathedral when you have seen the big ones in Europe. Not so special. Just a quick visit for us. No entré cost.  more »

  • Beautiful small plaza with a fountain and a church that is still in operation.
  • While the cathedral is basic, the small sqaure outside and the walls present great photo opportunities.
  • The beautiful church in Macau to pray and watch Mass
  • Not very welcoming unlike the other Catholic Churches I went to. However you could still take pictures of the inside but at a very far distance at the entrance. But still it's imposing facade is worth visiting.
  • Main church of the city
