My sister and I were not able to enter the church which is very famous with its grand interior because when we went there it was undergoing renovation. But locals told us that when it is open, many visit and pray inside the church.

Visited this church during our stay. It feels like it doesn't fit the city of Macau, almost out of place with it's style. The church is peaceful, nicely decorated and is beautiful to walk through. It's a quick stop as you explore the square.

Visited this catholic church post the visit to Ruins of St. Paul- its one of the photogenic churches from outside with yellow contrast walls. The interiors are quite simple and basic. Not to spend too much time on this- I took pictures and walked around.

You won't miss it on your way to Ruins of St Paul's from Senado Square. The yellow and white church is one of the major Catholic churches in Macau.

Very imposing but photogenic from the outside. Inside was a simple church which you couldn't really differentiate from other churches to be honest. Spent maybe 20mins in total here

We came across this church as we were going from Senado Square towards the Ruins of St Paul's, and were first attracted by the yellow facade. Inside the church has a high ceiling and is plain in decor rather than ornate and overembellished, giving an air of simplicity and calmness despite the number of tourists there. Going out of a...

One of the attractions whilst wondering around old Macau, worth a quick pop in here. Nothing like the wealth you see in Rome and other Italian cities, but clearly is a reflection of a more simple, basic style of Catholicism. Not a 'must see' but if you are in the area, is certainly worth walking in an a quick 10... More

The church sits in between the ruins of St Paul's and Senado Square, and it definitely caught my attention although I was not looking out for it. The architecture sticks out even though the surrounding buildings are also of colonial style. I did not go in, but the facade is definitely worth a stop to take a picture.
