St. Francis Xavier Church, Macau

3.9
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.

  • Because the Korean drama "The Palace, the Wild Princess" has been filmed here, a time of great noise, become a hot spot, many Koreans are particularly to the holy. The outer walls of the yellow shiraai, with the specially placed Christmas red, are very nice to take photos of!

  • Not only the outsides and insides of the church should visit. The surrounding is very beautiful. Must have a walk nearby. A library next to it also attractive.
  • Surrounded by a very busy area, an island of tranquility in Coloane. A good museum adjacent to the Chapel.
  • Beautiful church in Coloane Village. The set of Princess' Hours final eps.
  • The church sits at a pretty peaceful courtyard.
  • Good ambience. Really calm without so much traffic and noise.
