CULTURE

Our Lady of Carmo Church

嘉模聖母堂

As a peaceful venue where Catholics can proceed with religious activities or put forward the mission of preaching, the Church stands on a hill overlooking scenic Taipa Village. It was first proposed by the commander and approved by Bishop D. Manuel Bernardo de Sousa Enes. Wrapped up in light-yellow stucco walls, this unique three-storey house came to a completion in 1885, becoming the sole Catholic Church in Taipa at that time. Romance always blossoms when one visits in this vicinity. Opposite to the official department for marriage registration, the church has beyond doubt turned into an ideal backdrop for wedding photo shooting. Also its neigbouring lovely garden and some pavilions make it a perfect place for you to hang out.
