St. Francis Xavier Church, Macau
(3.7/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
Admire the Portuguese-style architecture of St. Francis Xavier Church, situated in a charming, quaint district with old buildings and cobblestone streets. Built in 1928, the Catholic church is dedicated to the famous missionary who died near Macau, and until recently housed one of his arm bones. Other significant relics still in its confines include those of various Japanese Christian martyrs and rebels. View the small fountains in front of the bright yellow facade, explore the modern interior, and observe the paintings on the walls. Be sure to examine the mosaic floor tiles and statues that surround this small place of worship. Afterwards, visit the Portuguese restaurant nextdoor or take some photographs of this vibrant gem.

  • 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 al...  more »
  • In Coloane village, a delightful village ensemble is waiting. The Church, the colonnades, the square with fountain and the sea... Without the characters and the product range one feels in Portugal... but exactly what makes increased... it not Portugal. Definitely worth a detour. Maybe a dinner in the "Café Nga Tim" Resto?

  • The Chapel itself is not the most magnificent, but the area around it is. A nice cozy area within residential village, that stands out with it's remaining Portuguese architecture.
  • good! dodukdle..ㅎ
  • I visited the chapel in the early morning , It is quiet and tranquil . I like the sacred painting on the wall, and the map indicates the route of the Portuguese sailors coming to Asia in the end of 15th century .
  • 有歷史價值!
  • Unlike the written Guidebook, a bit disappointed ... It's not a fan of no apparent thieves
