We were staying in the riviera hotel so it was a 10 minutes uphill walk to get there. But i was all worth it. You get a great panoramic view over Macau. On one side the old Macau with landmarks as the grand lisbao, the middle the macau tower. Covered with trees and flower and villa's you have nice cosy... More

This is a lovely old church on top of a hill, quite far from the crowds of the other well-known attractions of Old Macau. There were no other tourists around, just a few locals who maintain the grounds. It's a good place to take pictures over Macau. It's a great place also to escape the noise and bustle of the... More

I love the Colina da Penha, a place full of Western architectural style, and there have a church and a small park in the neighborhood of a church, if you are familiar with Colina da Penha, you will find behind the mountain there is a Virgin statue to pray. where I go there when I feel stressed and sad, and...

Missed Sunday mass, but decided to walk up from the A-Ma Gao temple and attended the midday payer by the nuns vowed to silence - except to pray and sing. Very spiritual and calming.

The church is nice and it's located at the top of a small hill which have a nice view of Macau. I personally like the Holy Mary statue in the small cave under the staircases.

It's way atop the hill so only the physically fit should bother making the trek up the hill to the church. The church itself is nice and simple. The view of the city and the sea is the bonus. Better to take a cab to the church and then walk down towards the rest of the heritage sites. If the... More

This is a must visit place if you don't mind steeping the hill nearly twenty five minutes. I walked from A-Ma Temple and found it was quite far. That did not change my mind. Up there, the church itself was truly exquisite. I enjoyed the magnificent view of Macau. (Macau Tower, great river view, Grand Lisboa.) On the day I... More
