Macau Sights

Igreja de São Lourenço (Church of St. Lawrence)

  • Religious Building/Site/Shrine

Fodor's Review

One of Macau's three oldest churches, the Church of St. Lawrence was founded by Jesuits in 1560 and has been lovingly rebuilt several times. Its present appearance dates to 1846. It overlooks the South China Sea amid pleasant, palm-shaded gardens. Families of Portuguese sailors used to gather on the front steps to pray for the sailors' safe return; hence its Chinese name, Feng Shun Tang (Hall of the Soothing Winds). Focal points of its breathtaking interior are the elegant

wood carvings, striking stained glass windows, a baroque altar, and crystal chandeliers.
