I drop in each time I am in Macau. Very iconic Catholic Church with many Holy icons and good place to spend some time to pray or meditate

Lovely well preserved old church next to Senado square. Visiting can be a welcome relief from the heat and the madness of the summer crowds. Also, there are daily masses and the guards make sure the quiet ambience is preserved.

A simple cathedral, not impressive at all. It is just nice and surprising to see this place in the middle of a "Chinese" city but, at the same time, in the middle of a "Portuguese" square

Small church (wouldn't say cathedral) that makes interesting backdrop for picture. Literally left the wife and kids in the car, popped out for a picture and popped back in. Worth the 5 minutes.

A small cathedral when you have seen the big ones in Europe. Not so special. Just a quick visit for us. No entré cost.

While the church itself is not overly impressive, the square looks like you are in Portugal. Even the sidewalk is the usual black & white tiles with the traditional Portuguese design.

It is a live and active big Catholic Cathedral in the centre of Macau. As usual, full with parishioners, local and visitors during Sunday evening mass when we visited Macau. It is good to stop for a while, have a solemn break, attend a mass...More

Very beautiful Cathedral in the middle of the historic centre. Inside is quite humble and beautiful as well, the square outside adds to the charm of the place.
