St Lawrences Church

English: St Lawrences Church, Portuguese: Igreja de São Lourenço, Traditional: 聖老楞佐教堂, Simplified: 圣老楞佐教堂

St. Lawrence’s Church is one of Macau’s oldest and most beautiful churches.

The Jesuits were responsible for establishing this church before 1560, though the current structure is the result of reconstruction works done in the 16th century and then again in the 19th century.
