About St. Lawrence Church in Macau

St Lawrence church is among the oldest churches located in Macau. It is one among those churches that are left behind as the memorial of the Portuguese rule and their culture. The church forms an imposing structure located in the garden which is filled with palm trees. The church can be approached from both behind or through the ornamental gate and the grand staircase. It was one of the churches that had great relevance to the families of sailors.

History of St Lawrence Church

St Lawrence church at Macau is the one which has a great historical significance in Macau and it comes under the Heritage Site of Macau. 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 Portuguese tried to spread the religion of Christianity in Macau. There are many other churches too in the place.

Architecture of St Lawrence Church

The St Lawrence church is the one which has followed the neo classical architectural style. The major façade of the church can be found to be divided to three sections. The center of the church is flanked by two square towers which are about 21 meters tall. The central part of main façade has a pediment interrupted within center by the oval emblem. The ground plan of the church is completely in the shape of the Latin cross. The ground plan measures 37 meters by 29 meters. Two interior chapels’ are houses in the shorter arms of the church building. The main nave inside forms the longer extension of the church. Main altar that one can find in the church is separated by 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

      Regarding the Hong Kong trip except the hotel , everything was well managed . The hotel room was very cosy and they used to charge for a cup of milk. Room was not equipped with microwave. The good part was it is very close to metro and other departmental store and one Indian restaurant Tulsi was 5 mins walk.The hotel breakfast was very basic and almost the same menu for 4 days

      I must say, I am satisfied with on ground experience with I need trip although pre booking experience was a little hastily done, in a way that, My transfers and City tour was organised is such short duration that It was impossible for me to follow the schedule. Upon discussion my itinerary was changed at the last moment and then it became possible. On ground I didn't experience any such issues. I would recommend I need trip to people but suggest that one should also do proper research on the itinerary they provide, as it's your money which is on stake.

    • Trip to Hong Kong

      The trip was very hectic and best done without the services of a travel agent. The city is very well connected with metro and trams and you need not at all get any agent. Even the travel guide provided there was not of any help. He wouldn’t share any history of the place neither would he/she tell us other significant locations to visit. We googled half of the places ourselves and went there. The guide would always be in a hurry to end the trip. Even the peak tram ticket is to go down from the peak tower and the worst part is the tram goes down in reverse direction and you cannot see anything. The travel agent wasted a whole day for us in the last day as we were made to catch the earliest ferry from Macau. And we were stuck at the ferry port till 3pm as they wouldn’t allow us into the airport. Also the hotel at Macau was under renovation, the agent never told us that. Though it didn’t spoil our stay. But still it would have been good to know. All the places we visited ourselves and didn’t have the guide rushing us.

      Our first trip outside India and that too from unknown travel agency but it was great, fantastic. We had nothing to worry about. All the Pre and post delivery procedures, Airport transfers, Ferry transfers, Sightseeing spots etc were just too good. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip. Although the Hotel quality in HongKong could have been better, but since it was peak season, I think it can be taken into consideration. But the coordination, the helpful attitude of the drivers and support staff in HK and Macau were just super. Thanks to Travel Triangle Team, it was a trip and sweet memories to cherish. Kudos and keep up the good work !
