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.

  • If we walk down the river (next to the Red Square), then we will see this church on the right side of the road. The church was built in 1849. The church is a Portuguese relic and has a neo-Gothic architecture. So despite the size is not big but quite beautiful. Across the street there is a small area for us to take photos with the background of the church. There are historical ruins with information boards.
