Igrejia de Santo Antonio in Macau

One of the oldest churches in Macau. It's quite small and it's on a hill. The design seems to be quite modern and a sign says it has been renovated in the 1930.

This church is one of the oldest churches in Macau. It is really good to see a big church in the middle of the main Macau. It is just opposite the Camoes Garden. I would recommend this for tourists only if you stay nearby or by chance you landed up here.

The church is a ten minute walk from the chaotic crowds at the Ruins of St. Paul. You quickly escape that madness and have a nice stroll down a Macau cobbled stone street. Historically, St. Anthony's is considered the first Catholic church in Macau. Saturdays around 4:30-4:45pm, they have English confession.

St. Anthony's is a Catholic church and UNESCO World Heritage attraction located on Rua de Santo Antonio, just across from Camoes Square and Park. This is a less frequently visited area of the Historic Centre of Macau, where you can escape crowds of Senado Square and the Ruins of St. Paul. St. Anthony's Church is one of the oldest in... More

These three jewels, St. Anthony's Church, Camoes Square, and the Protestant Cemetery, are just a short walk from St. Paul's Ruins which are easy to find if you follow the signs. The church is beautiful and quiet which allows you to pray and meditate. As a Catholic, this was a welcome place. Sunday services are regularly held in the church.... More

This beautiful church is just a short walk from the Ruins of St Paul's. Once you get to the top, keep walking and the signs will take you to this beautiful, quiet colonial church notable for its tortured statue of St. Sebastian, a must-see for all artists and writers (and Oscar Wilde fans!). The church is also right next to... More

I enjoyed looking around this area before going to the famous ruins of St. Paul's. Very quiet and cool and allows for a moment of meditation. You can walk from here to St. Paul's and find some cool antique shops along the way as well.

There are much better reviews than mine (see for instance the next review), but I couldn’t resist to rate my own church, St. Anthony’s Church, being my Patron Saint. One of the oldest churches in Macau dated before 1560. A very nice church though; close to the Luis de Camoes Garden & Grotto and the Old Protestant Cemetery.
