Situated next to St. Lazarus Church, the aptly named St. Lazarus Church District boasts a mixture of its old roots and a new, yet distinct, artsy culture.
Built in 1568, St. Lazarus Church and its surrounding colonial-style homes and cobblestone streets appear to have inspired creativity throughout the District. The area abounds with charming Portuguese-style buildings and decorative lights, worthy of photo-ops. The ancient and artistic buildings have drawn in those interested in the fine arts. Besides artists who arrive in droves, the School of Music of the Macau Conservatory is also based here, making this District a must-visit for art-enthusiasts.
Located midway between Guia Fortress and Mount Fortress, this area should be part of any itinerary for tourists interested in walks. So take a stroll here, and immerse yourself in the district’s architecture, art, and music along the way.
