Let's look at one of the oldest churches of Macao. The present-day building was the result of the works carried out in 1846. Situated on the southern coastline of Macao overlooking the sea, families of Portuguese sailors used to gather on the front steps of the church to pray and wait for their return, hence it was given the name: Feng Shun Tang (Hall of the Soothing Winds). In the eyes of Portuguese, St. Lawrence is a guardian who protects people and tells them wind direction. To this extend, he is similar to Goddess Mazu who is worshiped by local Chinese.
This week, we go to a well-known location in Macao, Senado Square. In the early 1990s, the authority hired some Portuguese experts to pave the this square with a wave-patterned mosaic of colored stones. From then on this area has become a popular place for cultural activities in Macao. The buildings around the the square have a long history and have many western features.
For instance, the Holy House of Mercy was a medical clinic and several other social welfare structures in early Macau. It later served as an orphanage and refuge for widows of sailors lost at sea.
