St Augustine Church is located just around the corner from the crowds of Senado Square. There’s a quiet, peaceful area close to both Nam Van Lakes and St. Lawrence district. St. Augustine Church is nestled in this zone, in front of Dom Pedro V Theatre and one-minute away from Sir Robert Ho Tung Library, and it’s still active as a religious centre.
It hosts several messes, including in Portuguese, English, Cantonese and Tagalog, catering and attracting different Catholic communities. The church was first establish by Spanish Augustinian priests in the end of the 16th century, most precisely in 1591. In 1874, the building was revamped to what people can presently witness. It has religious figures inside, a vast praying area and detailed moments of the Catholic history. It’s painted in bright yellow both on the outside and the inside.
Opening hours: 10:00am–6:00pm
