It is a beautiful church that was constructed in the year 1569. The church was then built with wood and later in 1618; it got reconstructed using clay as wood was not found to be a good option for long life. The St Lawrence church again went through another renovation in the year 1846 when the whole church got reconstructed with stone. The current look of the church is as per the construction happened in 1846. The church is indeed a great symbol of how the Portuguese tried to spread the religion of Christianity in Macau. There are many other churches too in the place.

Two interior chapels’ are houses in the shorter arms of the church building. The main nave inside forms the longer extension of the church. The main altar that one can find in the church is separated by a vaulted arch.

The interior of the church is very rich with beautiful carvings and embellishments. The magnificent wooden ceiling is painted with turquoise with the beams in white and gold colors that hand the elegant chandeliers. High altar of the church has the handsome figure of the St Lawrence in the gorgeous vestments. Above the figure a crown held by the cherub is hanged and there is a stained glass window behind it that has the image of dove which symbolizes Holy Spirit.

The Significance of the Church

The church has got the name Feng Shun Tang which means Church of smooth sailing wind as it was the place where the families of sailors prayed for their return. One of the church towers was used as ecclesiastic prison.  

St Lawrence church is indeed a historic spot worth visiting during the trip to Macau.

    • Trip to Hong Kong

      We enjoyed our vacations a lot. Thanks to travel triangle team and Deepti Gupta for organising our trip very well. Small tip for the ones who plan for Hong Kong Visit is that do not spend much on private transfers. Transportation is quite good in Hong Kong like MTR, buses, trams and ferries. It can be managed yourself that all are so easy if interested to explore yourself. And most important, if you are planning to visit Disneyland and Ocean park, you reach there as early as possible or might be by 10 AM. Lantau Island must visit place via crystal cable car from where you can see full view of Hong Kong.

      As directed while planing the trip that we need veg restaurant near hotel, we got hotel too far from central location. Hotel location was not satisfactory. My family was decided to come back on 1st day. Later we found Indian veg food at central on 2nd day which is 50 min far from hotel location.

    • Trip to Hong Kong

      Hi , here's my feedback: 1. We had to miss our first day tour to Lantau island as our flight got delayed and the driver was not ready to wait... we reached hotel at 11am got room within 15 min but with kid how can you expect me to leave in 15 min. 2. Disneyland pick up .. we insisted driver to pick up early but despite so many requests he denied. It was heavily raining so there was no point staying there till 9 pm 3. City tour was absolute waste .. we waited so much. Your guide Michael came 1 hour late to the meeting point and he was so rude with people especially Indians.. if he has so much ego issues with Indians then why does he even entertain them.. Sorry but my experience with you guys were not so good..

    • Trip to Hong Kong

      The trip itinerary was good but the trip pre-arrangements were not satisfactory and support was minimal. Initially my trip was to Hong Kong but due to my PAR rejection the support was not up to mark for the alternatives or options. The flights were booked by my side as suggested by TT representative and I suffered a loss of 24K for flight cancellation. Another loss of 16K I suffered for Hong Kong and Macau hotel bookings cancellation but I did not get any visibility for the cancellation charges as per contractual terms. The invoicing transparency to customers is making me doubt where my money is being put in and how much refund did I get. A total loss of 40K I have suffered for which I have not got any consolations and did not get recorded anywhere. The flight from Delhi left too late at 3am in the morning which wasted the half day trip as I reached Bali late night. I am not sure whether I can recommend Travel Triangle to my peer group for planning any holidays. Hoping management of TT pays some heed to my testimonial.
