St Dominic Square Macau

St Dominic Square [et_pb_section bb_built=”1″ _builder_version=”3.0.47″][et_pb_row][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_text _builder_version=”3.0.64″ background_layout=”light” text_orientation=”left” border_style=”solid”]

Senado Square links up with St Dominic Square infant of the Church of the same name. The asymmetrical street layout, typical of the old part of Macau, adds to the whole space a distinct feeling.

Since walking up from Senado Square one cannot see the church, the sudden appearance of the beautiful baroque church almost always stop people in their tracks. Tourists cannot but open their cameras to take some photos.
