I loved getting to see the Portuguese influence on the city. Th.is particular building was a little out of the way but worth the walk

Although it took us some time to find it, we were glad we did.
This small and rather humble church is not particularly impressive, yet we found the visit inside very satisfying.
For us (and for the locals) it was a break from the sweltering heat outside.

If you have the time and Inclination,the view from outside the church looking over the city is spectacular. The interior is pretty ordinary and not worth the trip on its own. A very long walk up the hill on a hot day for relatively little reward.

If you are in the area of the Maritime Museum, or the A-Ma temple, and have nothing else to do then you might want to consider going here. You can either walk or take a taxi to the church. If you walk it's uphill (but at least it's downhill on the return). Few tourists come here and therefore it isn't crowded; it does have the occasional wedding photo shoots.

From here you can see the Macau harbor and just enjoy the view. It's a nice place to look around see more of Macau from a different viewpoint.

I walked from the city center up a short hill (one of the ways up is near Sai Wan lake). It was a nice walk. I walked up through the bungalow area. It was an additional tiring 20 minutes but at least you can see where the rich people stay in Macau. When I got up there I realize it's not a very touristy location (It's not part of the official UN heritage sites) so that means a restful serene peak with great views, strong winds, and a quiet church for reflection. Of course there are other folks there as well, but most of them were like me - visiting alone. Recommended for the view.
