Explore Architecture in Macau by Church Hopping

Macau was ruled by Portuguese for more than 400 years. This is the reason that the architecture here is highly influenced by the Portuguese. The churches were built when Macau was a colonial country. The churches in Macau are beautiful and divine.

Let's read about some of the major churches in Macau

1. Chapel of our Lady of Penha

It is located in São Lourenco. The building has been renovated three times. The first building was built in 1622, second in 1837, and the present building was built in 1935. The church has a huge statue of Our Lady of Lourdes. It is perched upon a hill. It is built with natural stone. The key aspect of this church is that it is carved from a hill. The beauty of the church is its use of natural stone in the interior as well. The texture of the church mixes very well with vegetation around it. It is surrounded by wild trees and teak trees which are undisturbed.  What make the church unique are its rocky interiors.  The church is a tourist destination. Many events also take place in the church.

2. St.Dominic's Church

It was built by 3 Spanish Dominion priests in 1587 that is early 16th century. The church was then renovated and expanded in 1828.

The church is a famous tourist destination. The church has typical Portuguese style architecture. It is bright white in colour. The key aspect of this church is that it is made up of wood. It has three halls. The main hall is separated from deep hall by a brick arch. The ceiling is covered with beautiful decorative patterns. The crown being at the centre of the ceiling adds to the beauty of the church.

3. St. Francis Xavier Church

It is one of the recently built churches. It follows the same Portuguese architecture. Fusion of architecture is seen here as it is a mixture of Baroque style and Chinese architecture. The church is white and canary yellow in colour. The church is mainly famous because it is believed that Japanese missionaries first stayed here on this land.

4. Guia Chapel

The church was built in 1637. It has an image of Virgin and a very fine old painting of St. John. It stands next to a light house. The murals here represent both western and Chinese themes. It is situated on Guia hill. Visitors here get spectacular views of the Macau city from the hill and the church.

Macau is known for its casinos mainly. People cannot neglect the divine nature of ample churches here. Every church is unique its own way. All have majorly Portuguese architecture. Mark the above churches on your list when you visit Macau. Exploring these churches is a divine experience itself.

I would surely opt for your travel agency in future and also recommend the same to others. This is regarding the Bali trip I had recently. I opted for The Desi Yatri through travel triangle .

    Overall experience is not great. Even though we have started discussing about my trave needs 5 months before my travel dates, we ended-up in travelagenet dropping key locations from my iteranary. Travelagent drama started after full-payment of travel amount. Getting refund was nightmare .. (took more than 4 weeks) that to for the trips which they were not able to book (refer details below). When we requsted for Non-Veg dinner booking.. they endedup booking dinner with Beef and Pork .

    It was a good experience, Overall the trip went well, There were a couple of minor hiccups which were dealt professionally by Mr.Chanpreet from Holidays2Cherish. We are very happy with the services. Surely we have a lot of memories to cherish. Only thing which could have been better was the Hong Kong city tour, it would have been better if there was any option of full day city tour covering some more tourist attractions. It was a good trip overall. The guides were good and helpful. Macau tower Skywalk experience was the best(this was not included in the package), closely followed by Disneyland.
