St. Francis Xavier Church, Macau

4.0
Admire the Portuguese-style architecture of St. Francis Xavier Church, situated in a charming, quaint district with old buildings and cobblestone streets. Built in 1928, the Catholic church is dedicated to the famous missionary who died near Macau, and until recently housed one of his arm bones. Other significant relics still in its confines include those of various Japanese Christian martyrs and rebels. View the small fountains in front of the bright yellow facade, explore the modern interior, and observe the paintings on the walls. Be sure to examine the mosaic floor tiles and statues that surround this small place of worship. Afterwards, visit the Portuguese restaurant nextdoor or take some photographs of this vibrant gem. Make St. Francis Xavier Church a part of your Macau vacation plans using our Macau planner.
