Among the many churches in Macau, the Rose Hall is the most beautiful one. Its exterior is yellow and the main tone of the room is yellow. This church was founded in the 16th century by the Spanish church of Santo Domingo. It was originally a wooden church. It was called the Banyan Hall by the local Chinese. It was changed to a masonry structure in the 17th century. During the period, it was experienced by fire. The scale. The
Rose Hall is dedicated to the Catholic Virgin Mary.
There are probably too many churches in Macau. There are not many churches who pray in the church. Even in the golden tourist area, it is difficult to see the influx of large-scale tourists. Of course, when I go, it is neither a weekend nor a holiday. Perhaps it is not such a scene in a major festival. The history of the
Rose Hall is quite legendary. First, an anti-Portuguese officer was killed in Mass in 1644. The church was later used as a horse shed, military camp, and office for some time.
Such a delicate church is used as a horse shed, it is difficult to imagine the picture at the time. There is a small exhibition hall next to the
church, which is a treasure house of the Rose Hall, showing many artifacts of the Macao parish.
The Rose Hall is called the Church of Our Lady of the Rosary and the Church of Santo Domingo. It is located in front of the Chamber of Deputies and is only about 10 minutes walk from the famous tourist attraction, the Ruins of St. Paul. The open space in front of the church is almost always crowded. The church has a history of more than 400 years. The church was built in 1587 by the Spanish Church of Santo Domingo, enshrined in the Our Lady of the Rosary, and was taken over by the Portuguese priests the following year. Since it was originally built only from wooden boards, it was called the Banyan Hall by the Chinese, and it was changed to a masonry structure in the 17th century. It was burned down by fire in 1874, and it was now rebuilt after the rebuilding.
The appearance of the church is bright yellow, with white, both dignified and atmospheric. Free for visitors, be careful not to shout loudly and dress properly. The interior of the church is magnificent and its altar of Baroque architecture is elegant and refined.
And a trip to Macau, you can also take a trip to the museum. On the edge of the Rose Hall is a "treasure of sacred objects." The three-storey treasure house features artifacts from the Catholic Church of Macau, including the oil painting St. Augustine and the woodcarving "The Tied Christ".
There are two bronze clocks on the third floor, which is the oldest in Macau. Because of the age
Walking in the streets and alleys of Macau, there are many alleys. This is the way I walked to the St. Paul's. The Shishan Inclined Lane is such a kind. I walked slowly and found the long-sloping alley, and the wall was still There are all kinds of graffiti.
The Big Three Bar, as an iconic building in Macau, is a must. It is the front wall that remains after the burnt down of St. Paul's Church, and is beautifully carved. From the Ruins of St. Paul's, it is hard and time-consuming to look at the big fort to climb the mountain.
Macau's famous cultural landscape, including the Civic and Municipal Affairs Bureau, the General Post Office, the Rencitang Building, the Macau Tourism Bureau and other historical buildings are all scattered around the front of the Chamber. From the front of the council hall, walk north along Banyutang Street, or you can reach the front of the Banyan Hall in front of the Church of Our Lady of the Rose. You can stop and take a photo.
The Church of Our Lady of the Roses is one of the most beautiful churches in Macau. The church was founded by Santo Domingo in 1587. It is the first church in China. The front of the church is engraved with the logo of Dominican. The beige and white appearance, combined with the small fresh green doors and windows, and the exquisite carving pattern, are traditional Baroque style. The main entrance of the church is not open at ordinary times. Visitors can ring the doorbell first, then enter through the adjacent gate, and then bypass a corridor to enter the interior of the church. It is quiet enough to hear the old fan turning.
The old city wall is the only city wall in Macau. The old city wall is located on the left side of the ruins of St. Paul's Church. It is adjacent to the temple. It is a wall built of bauxite. The bauxite is mainly made of sediment, fine stones and straw. The blended clam shell powder is laminated.
I enjoyed seeing this church and exploring the interior though I didn't see the actual church part just the two floors of museum - The main church part was closed for construction or renovation. Gorgeous vibrant yellow fascade right in the heart of the historic district. Free to look around the museum, nice insight into Macau's history and culture.
Near the ruins of St Paul’s you will be able to find The Santa Maria Del Fiore church. The church is called The Lady of the Rosary as well as Santa Maria Del Rosario. Dating all the way back to 1929 the Catholic diocese of Macau has allowed the shrine of Our Lady of Fatima to be worshiped in the Hall of the Rosary by its many disciples. Every year during the afternoon of May 13th, they hold a grand iconostasis. It is one of the places in Macau that you must visit when there. There you will encounter many different festival activities that you will enjoy as you take them in.
