Top Attraction In Macau: Saint Dominic’s Church

It’s hard to miss the beautiful yellow and emerald church, right in the middle of Senado Square in the former Portuguese colony of Macau. A UNESCO World Heritage Site in the Historic Centre of Macau, the Church of Saint Dominic (Igreja de São Domingos) was built in 1587 by three Spanish Dominican priests.

Inside this grand Catholic church, a large baroque alter contains a fine white statue of the Virgin and Child and a work of art of Christ. Saint Dominic’s Church also has an excellent compilation of exquisitely-carved ivory and wood images of saints. Don’t miss this top attraction in Macau!
