Pics of St. Joseph's & Mandarin House, Macau

Jump to last reply

Took quick trip to Macau earlier this year, and just got to process and upload the photos. Mostly from two of the UNESCO World Heritage sites, St. Joseph's Seminary and Church; and Mandarin House.

I've visited and posted pics of St. Joseph's before. Still my favorite church in Macau because of its beautiful interior. Didn't realize it when we visited it, but a relic from St. Francis Xavier is now stored in this church, having moved from the church in Coloane that's named after Xavier.

Mandarin House is actually a large compound, and is finally opened after a lengthy restoration. Unlike the Lou Kau Mansion which is a single Chinese-style house, this is actually TWO houses plus other courtyards and garden and hallways. And good display of the history behind the house and its original owner Zheng Guanyin.

Additional pictures of Largo du Lilau, the public square just outside the Mandarin House, and also on the World Heritage list. And a few from our suite at the Banyan Tree.
