La chiesa di San Domenico (in portoghese: Igreja de São Domingos; in cinese: 玫瑰堂) è stata fondata con il nome completo di chiesa del convento dei dominicani di Nostra Signora del Rosario nel 1587 da alcuni frati domenicani provenienti dalla città di Acapulco, in Messico. Dal 2005 è parte del complesso di edifici storici appartenenti al centro storico di Macao iscritto nella lista dei beni patrimonio dell'umanità dell'UNESCO.
La chiesa è stata edificata con uno stile barocco ed è nota per essere un insieme di stile europeo e macaense. Si trova in largo San Domenico, a San Lorenzo vicino all'edificio della Casa del Senato.

A Holy place in the center of Historical District. Not too far from St. Paul's ruins, walking through the busy shops selling the famous pork jerky, local delicacies, local shops and restaurants, we arrived at this church. The interior was beautiful. In the middle of the sanctuary we could see a statue of Jesus Christ carrying the cross. On the side we saw an antique wooden confessional from the early years. As usual, a statue of Mary, and the depiction of the Calvary can be found in this old and amazing Catholic church. A very welcoming and serene place in the busy district. A must see if you are visiting the area.

Beautiful church. Guests are expected to be respectful and silent inside the church. The interior itself is full of art. There is a museum on the back of the church.

A very interesting historic church. When we came, it just so happened that we arrived just in time for the Tagalog Mass...

This beautiful church is situated in Senado Square, you cannot miss it as it’s on the way to St Paul’s Ruin. As we stepped into the church, we left the crowded street behind and entered a peaceful place.

A very old church that is located within walking distance from St Paul Ruins, with a rich history and interesting architecture. They also have a small museum near the back of their church with Christian paintings and artwork. Worth a visit since its free, but you can consider donating if you want to. Church grounds is open to public except on Sundays I think.

A very interesting historic church. We came for Mass when I took my lovely lady on a trip to Macau. It just so happened that we arrived just in time for the Tagalog Mass...

St. Dominic's is located on a small St. Dominic's Square at the far end of the much larger Senado Square in the heart of the city center of Macau. It is an important and interesting member of the World Heritage collection and easily one of the frequently visited attractions in the city. We enjoy St. Dominic's and consider it one of our favorite churches in all of Macau. St. Dominic's was built by the Dominicans in the early 17th century, on the site of an earlier chapel and convent from the 1590s. It features one of Macau's finest facades, showing off a cream coloured front with dark green window shutters. The appearance is just lovely behind the niced tiled grounds of St. Dominic's square. The sight of St. Dominic's can be particularly special on sunny mornings when the background sky is deep blue, before the sun is too high. Within the church, visitors are treated to a conventionally conservative style nave and seating area, which is commonly found in Macau. However, it also has a slightly more elaborate Baroque style alter area, sharing this similarity with Macau's finest Baroque style church, that being St. Joseph's Chuch, located off St. Augustine Square. In addition, there is a separate museum attached to the church, which contains over 300 Macanese Catholic artifacts, mostly from the 19th and 20th century. This is worth a look as well when visiting St. Dominic's Church. Overall, we frequently enjoy making quick stops at St. Dominic's Church when visiting the Senado Square area. This church is always a pleasant visit. However, it can be very busy at times when the crowds descend upon this area of Macau. Like other important members of the World Heritage collection, visits early in the day or later in the afternoon might be worth your time if you want a more peaceful experience at St. Dominic's.
