St. Francis Xavier Church, Macau

3.8
#11 of 45 in Historic Sites in Macau
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.

    Good ambience. Really calm without so much traffic and noise.

    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.

    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 .

    韓劇宮的拍攝場景,葡式教堂的色彩跟裝飾配色都跟華人信仰中心的寺廟不同。中午兩旁攤子還沒營業很好拍照,傍晚時分營業的時候就熱鬧多了。

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.
