  • From the hill with the Church, but Penha is one of the tourist spots of the Macau S.A.R. panoramic city of Macau S.A.R.. To pray for safety of navigation are overlooking the town statue seems to be built along with the Church. Go by taxi to go uphill is tight, so good.

  • I really enjoyed the ascent. The park and its surroundings are excellent while the statue, lookout and gazebos with seating at the top of the hill are very attractive and well worth the effort require...  more »
  • Building a train to the bishop's Hill church, we went all the way to the front of the well, the Cheng house with the Sukaka temple and the Maritime Museum. Because the Bishop Mountain Church is on the hill, there are babies pushing cars and children to go to the mountains to meet the arduous, down a lot of relaxed. The open space in front of the bishop's Hill church is not very good. Because people are few, so the environment is quiet. There is a small park next to the slope with the swing swing, not afraid of children without chatting.

  • Constructed in 1622 by Augustinians and then in 1834 when they were expelled. Church was reconstructed in 1837 and then rebuilt in 1935. In the old days, the chapel served as a pilgrimage site for Catholic sailors who embarked for a dangerous voyage. In front of the chapel stands a statue of Our Lady Lourdes and at the steps of the hillside staircase exists the picturesque grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes. (Provide protection to seamen and fishermen)
  • Situated on a small hill with a panoramic view overlooking the nam van lake. Opening hour of the church on the day of visit is quite late almost 1130am.
  • Penha Church, is a small church pray to the patron saint of seafarers. There is a marble sculpture of the Madonna. Overlooking the half island of Macau, beautiful environment. Bishop hill next to the Chapel, built in 1622 in the Fort, Palace of simple, trails weave, used for mass prayers in Portuguese soldiers. Around 1892, demolished the old Castle and to gradually extend the Chapel, rebuilt in 1835 to become today the grand scale. Church building Tower Gatehouse as the mainstay, triangle standing on the roof of the Virgin Mary statue, right as the Bell Tower of the Church, belfry towering, very solemn.
  • Good sightseeing Small and beautiful Catholic Church! Sunday mass time is 9:15, English mass!
  • A Catholic church for the Bishop and now being run by the Trappist nuns. Beautiful view to the south, west and the Guia so we can enjoy the sunset there or the A-Ma Temple.
