A fantastic place, with a really nice Church and view to Taipa and Macau. One of the landmarks of Macau. It's a place of mandatory visit special to get away of all the Chinese that infest the downtown.

Walking up the hill in the heat of a summers days is perhaps not best time to go, but even without the church the view was worth the effort. At time of my visit a group of nuns were singing inside which was lovely.

Not only do you get to visit a beautiful Church and get a history lesson, the courtyard offers breathtaking views of Macau from a nice hilltop vista. There is a good reason couples come here for photos and you can drive to within a few...More

Perched atop a small hill with a panoramic view of nam van lake. We could also see the Macau tower. However the opening hours of the church was quite late on that day of visit, at almost 1130am.

This is a lovely church on the top of Pena Hill, within walking distance from St Lawrence Church and St Joseph's Seminary. One of the only places in Macau with daily English Mass at 8.00 am on weekdays and 9.15 am on Sundays. The nuns...More

The church is quite plain both inside and out. It is not as ornate as I expected in a former Portuguese colony. There is also quite a steep climb to get to the church at the top of a hill, but buses 9 & 16...More

This is a lovely classic church on the top of the hill. Another place to visit if you dont likr overcrowded tourist attraction. Beautiful view of Macau harbour could be seen from its garden. We took bus no 16 from Senado square, MOP 3.2/persons.
