San Antonio Church





How to get there:

Rua de Santo Antonio. It is opposite Camoes Garden and Grotto. There is a bus stop nearby with service from buses 8A, 17, 18, 19, 26.

San Antonio Church was the first Catholic Church in Macau. The existing building is not the original however, and this church is famous for having burned to the ground as many as three times.

This modern building is dedicated to Saint Anthony (a military saint) and on 13th June each year a ceremony is held in which the Chairman of the Macau government devotes part of the military provisions of the area in memory of the saints.

Be sure to stop by the Camoes Garden and Grotto if you're visiting the church.
