It is a lovely church - it is called a Cathedral but compared to the large ones in Europe, is of a much smaller scale. It is not too far from the Senado Square and is lovely to drop in for quiet contemplation and /...More

I've been here for the Sunday mass in the evening and the church was packed as if it was in the heart of Lisboa on Christmas or Easter. The interior of the church is very rich in statues and paintings. It's extremely well maintained and...More

We attended masses here on ordinary days. Starts at 7:45, it's in Cantonese, they recite the Holy Rosary after the mass.

I drop in each time I am in Macau. Very iconic Catholic Church with many Holy icons and good place to spend some time to pray or meditate

Lovely well preserved old church next to Senado square. Visiting can be a welcome relief from the heat and the madness of the summer crowds. Also, there are daily masses and the guards make sure the quiet ambience is preserved.

A simple cathedral, not impressive at all. It is just nice and surprising to see this place in the middle of a "Chinese" city but, at the same time, in the middle of a "Portuguese" square

Small church (wouldn't say cathedral) that makes interesting backdrop for picture. Literally left the wife and kids in the car, popped out for a picture and popped back in. Worth the 5 minutes.

A small cathedral when you have seen the big ones in Europe. Not so special. Just a quick visit for us. No entré cost.

While the church itself is not overly impressive, the square looks like you are in Portugal. Even the sidewalk is the usual black & white tiles with the traditional Portuguese design.

The walk was very nice, did not live up to the other Cathedrals we have seen in other places. But right off the square, so don’t miss it
