Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Located at the St Augustine Square has its own history. Established by Spanish Augustinians in 1591. Still maintains the traditional Easter procession. Cannot miss this heritage when you arrive at the St Augustine Square.

This is another illustration of Macau's rich religious life. Igreja de Santo Agostinho is a small historic church at the city's historic centre. Its facade shows signs of history, while the interior is colourful. A good place to take a couple photos.

This is the church for which St. Augustine's Square takes it name. The church was closed for renovations after suffering roof damage in early 2016. However, it has now reopened its doors to visitors touring the World Heritage area. Opening hours are 10am to 6pm daily.

Historically, the church dates back to the end of the 16th-century when it was founded by the Spanish Augustinians. What you find is a Neo-classical facade, pastel yellow in colour, like so many of the old Portuguese style churches around Macau.

Within the church, you will find a relatively simple but large nave lined with columns, light stucco ornamentation and yellow colour. The altar showcases an important church possession, Bom Jesus dos Passos, which is used to lead the annual Easter Procession which starts at St. Augustine and makes it way through the city centre each year.

During Chinese New Year, it is worth being at St. Augustine's when the 238-metre long dragon makes its way through the Historic Centre of Macau. This is a stopping point, where a short performance is made prior to the dragon continuing on its journey. If you stand upon the elevated staircase of Dom Pedro V theatre house just next door, you can take nice pictures of the dragon when it passes by the church.

This church was under renovation when we were there a few days before Christmas, so we couldn't see much of it. One of the many churches in the historic centre of Macau, which would be worth visiting when renovations are finished.

Found this church still under renovation on the day of visit. However it's fascade is still excellent though in need of repair. Round the corner is the library of sir Ho Tung. Further down the street you would find the church of st Lawrence.

The St. Augustine Church was closed for renovation. The outside view was good. You can spend some time at St Augustine Square to breath some fresh air. Also visit the Dom Pedro V Theater just opposite the church.

As of 20 June 2016: This church is currently sealed off. There is repair work going on as the roof has collapsed.

Nonetheless, you will walk past this church if you are in St Augustine's Square to visit the library and theatre, so you can still take a picture of the exterior of the church.

One of the locations where you can see the Dragon Parade through the Historic Centre of Macau during the first day of the Chinese New Year (CNY) is at St. Augustine Square.

Here, the dragon pauses, curls up in front of St. Augustine for a couple of minutes. You can stand across the street, against the teal wall of Dom Pedro IV and take some very nice pictures of the dragon and performers here.

Another good elevated spot is up the stairs of Dom Pedro IV where there are off-centred angles. You can capture the entire facade of St. Augustine with the dragon in the same frame from here.

Note: Take you pictures quickly and be ready to move if you are following the dragon through the Historic City Centre. It quickly races to the Pink Government Headquarter after this.

I spent two days walking around Macau and really enjoyed getting lost down side streets and getting off the main streets. This church was my favourite find off the main streets. I highly recommend visiting this church, I couldn't believe I was just around the corner from the crowds of Largo de Senado, it was a quiet, peaceful area and I was able to sit and have some peaceful time to prayer and reflect in a stunning colonial area Church.

It s another church along the Heritage Trail. It is not as touristy due to it being farther away from Central or Sentado Square. It is good to learn about the history of Portuguese catholic influence on Macau, but to me, the churches all seem similar, so brief stops are all that is needed.
