St. Lazarus is now a hip neighbourhood featuring several cultural attractions such as Albergue SCM hub. With art galleries, a cultural happenings hall, architect work stations, craft shops, and Albergue 1606, a restaurant serving traditional Portuguese food. St. Lazarus is known for its church with the same name. With a long history in Macau, it used to house the leper community living in the city, but it was also populated by locals.
With its colonial-style houses revamped–still with its original look and architecture–they now offer a wide selection of modern restaurants and shops, including some vintage and tattoo parlors. The Macau Conservatory is also located in this neighborhood. Set 10 minutes away from Kiang Wu hospital, it’s a good option for visitors wanting a more traditional and historical sightseeing day. It’s also popular amongst friends for its hip restaurants and cafés, and amongst families for the no-cars streets where kids can play and ride a bike on weekends.
