St. Francis Xavier Church, Macau

(3.4/5 based on 160+ 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.

  • Church and Francis Xavier's remains lay in the past. It was early afternoon we visited is sparsely crowded could look calm. Vivid eye-catching exterior, but the Interior is warm colors that taste nice even.

  • For example, do you want to go see the Palace drama before switching places downwind than you think is just a small fishing village extant seemed to effortlessly switching around? But that does look just like that

  • 教堂前的一片空地是有多小孩在玩砂炮。我們兒時常玩的砂炮,現在的小孩根本不知道甚麼!我好幾次和朋友的孩子一起來玩,玩得很high!我們都會在附近安德魯買葡撻過來,邊玩砂炮,邊吃葡撻!夏天還可以欣賞很漂亮的荷花呢!

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