Kuan Tai Temple

This temple is located close to the old Chinese Bazaar area, which nowadays functions as St. Dominic’s Market, still keeping the essence of the original function of the area.

三街會館之所在地原為昔日澳門之繁榮市區“榮寧坊”,故其門前之社壇現仍刻有榮寧社字樣,且有聯云“榮居康樂境,寧享太平年”。

The location of this Chinese construction at the heart of the main city square with its predominantly western-style architecture illustrates the harmonious coexistence of the two cultures.

This temple is directly associated with long-standing Chinese business associations, precursors to the Chinese Chamber of Commerce in the city.

會館初設時只是商人議事的場所,後因館中設有關帝神殿及財帛星君殿,祀者日眾,廟宇成為會館的主要功能。

St. Dominic’s church

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

Founded in 1587 by three Spanish Dominican priests who originally came from Acapulco in Mexico, this church is also connected to the Brotherhood of Our Lady of the Rosary. It was here that the first Portuguese newspaper was published on Chinese soil, A Abelha da China (“The China Bee”), on 12th September 1822. The bell tower, at the back of the building, has been modified into a small Museum of Sacred Art, now exhibiting a collection of around 300 artifacts.

由聖多明我會(道明會)創建於1587年,是該會在中國的第一所教堂。教堂初時用木板搭建,華人稱之為“板樟廟”。又因教堂供奉玫瑰聖母,故又稱“玫瑰堂”。整座教堂建築富麗堂皇,其巴洛克建築風格的祭壇更是典雅精緻。教堂旁的“聖物寶庫”收藏了三百多件澳門天主教珍貴文物。

Address: St. Dominic’s Square
Opening hours: 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
