=>> extrait /----The Church of Sto. Domingo is one of the most beautiful churches
in Macau. You will never miss this yellow and green Church right in the middle of Leal Senado plaza of Macau. It is along a junction of a street and an alleyway bearing the same name.
Sto. Domingo is a baroque Filipino style church built by the Spanish Dominican friars in the mid 16th century.
Walkway on the right of the church which leads to the sacristy and the Sacred Museum on the upper floors.
They also built next to the church a monastery which does not exist anymore.
The painting of Chinnery at the right shows the plaza in front of the church. This plaza used to be the marketplace.
The Dominicans eventually managed to set up churches in China.
About St. Dominic
Founder of the Order of Preachers, commonly known as the Dominican Order; born at Calaroga, in Old Castile, c. 1170; died 6 August, 1221.
His parents, Felix Guzman and Joanna of Aza, undoubtedly belonged to the nobility of Spain, though probably neither was connected with the reigning house of Castile, as some of the saint's biographers assert. Of Felix Guzman, personally, little is known, except that he was in every sense the worthy head of a family of saints. To nobility of blood Joanna of Aza added a nobility of soul which so enshrined her in the popular veneration that in 1828 she was solemnly beatified by Leo XII.
The example of such parents was not without its effect upon their children. Not only Saint Dominic but also his brothers, Antonio and Manes, were distinguished for their extraordinary sanctity.
Antonio, the eldest, became a secular priest and, having distributed his patrimony to the poor, entered a hospital where he spent his life minis ministering to the sick.
