Inspired by Baroque style details, St. Lawrence’s Church in Macau comes across as a pleasing destination to call at when holidaying in the area or its suburbs. Built during the 16th century by the Jesuits, the church has won fame in the hearts of many as not only being the 3rd oldest church in Macau but also because of its sheer presence. For those seeking its peace and comfort as part of their travel to Macau, guests may indulge in the rich rewards of reserving a stay at the glorious Galaxy Macau Hotel resort which is categorised among leading Macau hotels to stay at with family or friends.
The wealth of architecture that is found adorning both the exterior and interior of the sanctuary represents the neighbourhood that once existed in Macau where the rich and famous found living life a thing of the past. Nestled on Macau’s southern coastline, visitors will be afforded unobstructed vistas of the ocean and beyond. According to popular belief, the shrine was named Feng Shun Tang or the ‘Hall of the Soothing Winds’ by the families of Portuguese sailors who congregated at the church to pray for the safe return of their loved ones. Move through its inviting surrounds before retiring to the main alter of St. Lawrence’s where one’s time can be spent in quiet prayer before setting out on a sightseeing trip that is sure to bring you up close and personal with a number of similar appealing cultural hotspots in scenic Macau.
