Cathedral, Macau

4.1
#13 of 45 in Historic Sites in Macau
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. Cathedral is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Macau Edition.

    It is located within walking distance from the Sedona square, clean appearance of the gray Church. It is also decorated with similar colors and very relaxed atmosphere. The colours of the stained glass Windows at the back of the altar is a simple space, so stand out even more. Lit up in the evening, guests can also enjoy the atmosphere.

    It is located about a 5-minute walk from Senado square, Cathedral and square. Beautiful stained glass Windows was inside in the sacred to St. Lazarus Church. The location seemed to place a central role of Catholicism in Asia, feel the history and beauty.

    Great for lunch or dinner (maybe breakfast too?). Or a cool place to sit & drink. It's in a quite little side street that you will probably walk past when you go for a wander around town. Highly recommend you stop by if your're looking for an authentic but clean Portuguese / Macau experience that isn't surrounded by the kitsch of the casinos (I couldn't find any others like this). I stopped in at noon to escape the heat, ended up staying all day eating, drinking and watching the parade of locals, some of which stop by for glass of wine and a quick chat. Food is yum and beers are cold. Staff are a mix of nationalities, very friendly and unlike the casinos seem genuinely happy to work there. I'm sure it kicks on to be a cool bar at night but unfortunately I didn't get to find out. Spend some time here and it will be the sort of place you hope to come back to.

    The seafood pasta was fantastic, very rich and they were pretty generous with the ingredients. Friendly staffs too. Had pasta with a glass of rose for MOP130, pretty decent price for the quality! Recommended!

Where to stay in Macau

Cotai Strip in Macau offers luxury hotels, with famous names providing rooms looking out over the harbor and down into the historical center. Establishments in this area also feature onsite entertainment options and Vegas-style casinos. Look for more affordable options north of Nam Van Lake, where chain and boutique hotels provide rooms with views of the city, the harbor, and across to China proper. Head farther north for lower rates offered by hostels and apartment rentals.
