St Lawrence Church - Review

The Twin staircases that lead up to the twin towers of this church are its most interesting feature. The St. Lawrence Church is a pretty, yellow-painted church in Macau that has also become a very important tourist attraction.

Interestingly, the church was initially built out of wood. It was only later concretized. This 200 year old church is quite typical of the Portuguese culture of Macau. Flanked on both sides by palm trees, the church is a typical tropical site. The interior of the church is simple and yet very beautiful. The wooden roof has been painted a bright turquoise blue.

Due to its significance to the history of Macau it has also been deemed as a UNESCO World Heritage site.

St Lawrence Church  is one of the main tourist attractions to visit and should definitely feature in you Macau Itinerary 2 Days

St Lawrence Church, Macau Reviews

  • A serene place in the center of Macau. It is a very beautiful church with a small garden. When I sat there it was just like in Lisbon.

  • St. Lawrence is one of six UNESCO World Heritage churches in Macau and a place we enjoy visiting. It is situated away from the crowded Senado Square, meaning that it receives far fewer visitors and provides a much more peaceful and relaxing place to see and spend time. Dating back to the mid 16th century, St. Lawrence is one of the oldest Catholic churches in Macau. It is also one of Macau's largest and most beautiful churches as well. The church features a traditional neo-classical facade, painted in a pastel yellow colour. There is a lovely staircase leading up church entrance as well as a small garden space with park benches. The garden area provides more character to St. Lawrence compared to its peer churches in the Historic Centre of Macau. This is always a pleasant place to take a seat and enjoy a rest if you've been walking for a while. The inside of St. Lawrence is enjoyable to see as well. There is subtle use of Baroque design, particularly around the altar. The wooden ceiling is quite attractive as well, painted in soft blue colour, it complements the pastel yellows found inside and outside the church very well. In all, the interior of the church is simple, modest yet slightly elegant in appearance. Like the outside of church, it is quite pleasing on the eye. In the end, St. Lawrence Church can be a pleasant surprise for those who make the time to get away from Senado Square and see the World Heritage attractions in other ares of the Historic Centre of Macau. You can find St. Lawrence on the small Avenue Sao. Lorenzo, 6-8 minutes walk from Senado Square or 2 minutes walk past St. Augustine Square.

  • It's a solemn place for worship and adoring God

  • A great stopover while you walk from Ma Zhu temple to Senado Square or the other way around. A church to offer your prayers.

  • An exquisite place of prayer and worship, a tranquil oasis for ideal for meditation...
