Chapel of St. Francis Xavier

Overview

Built in 1928, the Chapel of St. Francis Xavier in Coloane reflects the much older Baroque architectural style. The chapel is dedicated to St. Francis, a missionary who brought Christianity to Japan in the 1500s but died just 50 miles off of Macau. Relics of the saint remains within the chapel. A bone from St. Francis’s arm was once honoured within a silver reliquary on site, but this was later moved. Yet, the Chapel is perhaps better known for the popular Korean drama Goong which used it as a backdrop. The chapel also contains a small statue of St. Andrew Kim Taegon. Be sure to check out the famous Portuguese egg tarts at Lord Stow’s Bakery nearby.
