The square has been designed utilising a fusion of Chinese and Portuguese colonial architecture. However, St. Dominic’s Church is a major highlight here; it’s one of the 29 heritage destinations that are part of Macau’s Historic Centre and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It was built in the late 16th century and houses a sacred art museum with several religious art relics.

After visiting the church, you can check out the vibrant arcades alongside it that add to the character and action of this lovely piazza. Tourists enjoy photographing by the church, but the best time is in the early morning when it’s less crowded.

St Dominic’s Square is right by Senado Square, another historic destination that you shouldn’t miss while here. It’s among the top landmarks of the country and a wonderful place to soak up the local culture. There are numerous Chinese herbal medicine shops around this area, and it is interesting to learn more about these natural remedies that have been around for ages. As you explore the square, look down to note the black and white tile streets because they give off that distinct European feel.

Senado Square has many attractions worth visiting here. These include the Holy House of Mercy, Leal Senado, and the old Post Office building. Additionally, there are several food and dining outlets where you can savour local Chinese and Portuguese delicacies.

St Dominic’s Square and this area of Macao is a must-visit for travellers.
