#119 of 343 in Things to do in Macau
Visit a cultural attraction with a rich history at Albergue SCM (Albergue da Santa Casa da Misericordia). The two main century-old buildings, constructed during the Portuguese colonial era, display Iberian architecture with golden-hued walls and a rustic appearance. Between them sits a tranquil courtyard with two old camphor trees. Once a refuge for elderly women, the buildings came to be known as the "Shelter of the Poor" during World War II, offering refuge to the needy and those without a home. These days the buildings house art galleries and workshops, fostering a sense of community and artistry that draws from the colonial heritage of the city. A Portuguese restaurant here offers fresh meals and an array of drinks and snacks. Plan trip to Macau with our itinerary maker to find out where to go and what to do.

  • This is a hidden gem in Macau! Just a 5 minute walk from the ruins of St Paul. It is in a quiet street, and a nice historical feel. There’s also a Portuguese shop inside to pick up some nice treats :)  more »

  • Hidden place. I'm impress
  • Albergue SCM is a historic location found in the St. Lazarus District of Macau, where you can find a exhibition gallery and area within a lovely inner courtyard, alongside a nice little shop called Mercearia Portuguesa and a nice restaurant called 1601 Albergue. Technically, Albergue SCM represents the entire yellow coloured complex and courtyard and it is one of the most beautiful individual spots in Macau, with the presence of a lovely large Camphor tree covered in green vines and foliage. It is a beautiful setting and one of several gorgeous areas to visit in St. Lazarus district. The little shop here is a nice stop, selling imported products from Portugal. We also like 1601 Albergue for the African Chicken and lovely alfresco dining environs. If you visit on weekends, you will often find small performances, concerts, fairs and other arranged activities taking place within the Albergue SCM grounds or just outside on the tiled street beyond the compound. We stop at Albergue SCM regularly when visiting the St. Lazarus district of Macau and find it well worth at stop for lunch or even just 15-20 minutes to have a look around and take a few pictures before moving on to other attractions in this area of the city.
