St. Francis Xavier Church, Macau

(170+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site
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.

  • 澳門是一個天主教為主要宗教之一的地方,聖方濟各聖堂是其中一個重要的觀光地點;它有幾百年的歷史外,這裡的自然景觀也是很美的。  more »

  • Soak up the atmosphere of the rustic but Portugal could feel the tiny Cathedral.
