The Holy House of Mercy–officially called Santa Casa da Misericórdia de Macau in Portuguese–is an iconic white building standing on the left side of Senado Square. This well-kept colonial building includes impressive artifacts regarding the history and course of the Catholic church in Macau.
Established by the first Bishop of Macau in 1569, you can’t miss it when walking down the Senado Square. One of the Holy House of Mercy’s main roles was to provide support for orphans, widowed women and also the poor. The Holy House of Mercy includes an administrative area but also a museum in the back, where visitors will get to know all about the institution and its history.
Opening hours: Daily, Tuesdays–Sundays, 10:00am–12:00pm and 2:00pm–5:30pm
