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.

Very beautiful Cathedral in the middle of the historic centre. Inside is quite humble and beautiful as well, the square outside adds to the charm of the place.

Not the biggest church in Macau and not the most interesting, it's still worth visiting as there's some beautiful stained glass. However, outside of mass times, visitors are only allowed into the back of the church. Rather plain with little in the way of ornate...More

This place is some kind of square with parks and church. Many people gather here to chat or leisure. Great place to visit at evening, not noon.
