The Church of Bishop Hill (also known as the Church of Bishop Hill, the Church of Notre Dame on the Cliffs, the Church of Pina and the Church of Notre Dame on the West), formerly known as the Penha Church, was built in 1622 in Portuguese for the mountain rock on the seaside. The church was renovated many times, and in 1935 it was rebuilt with the bishop's private residence to its present size. The building has the spire of the Gothic church, reflecting the classical eclecticism style. Western View Church and Bishop's Private House are listed in "Macau Heritage List" because they are rated as buildings of architectural artistic value. It is known that the original position of the Church was Xiwangyangshan Fort, built in 1622, which is a place that can be attacked and defended by soldiers to defend against the invasion of the Netherlands. The construction of Xiaowengtang was due to the fact that the Portuguese navigators met the Dutch pirate ships but were not injured, so they fulfilled their promises of building the Tang, commonly known as vows. Therefore, the Notre Dame church dedicated to the Virgin Mary was built near the fort, initially for the Portuguese soldiers stationed in the fort to pray and participate in mass. After 1892, after the turret was demolished, the church was gradually expanded and built many times. In 1935, it was planned by the bishop of the Catholic Macau diocese to rebuild the church with the bishop's private residence on the current scale. There is a way that the predecessors planted trees and later generations enjoy the cool. Now it can be said that it is a good place for couples to take wedding dresses and travel.

Bishop Hill Cathedral is located on Bishop Hill (West Looking at the Yangshan Mountains). If you come up from the foot of the mountain, you should climb slowly for at least 40 minutes (I see someone coming up by taxi or by car). There is no rest place along the way, there is not much shade, it may be sunny in summer, and the road is steep. In fact, the top of the mountain is nothing to see, just a statue of the Virgin Mary, a church. But standing on the top of the mountain can be 180 öview the scenery of Macau Island, and the traffic is also beautiful, many film and television production has taken scenes here, so there are many couples here to take wedding photos. However, friends who take pictures on their mobile phones may be disappointed because the church is very high and wide, and the platform is limited. Unless they lie on the floor to take pictures, it is very difficult to get a good panoramic view. The interior of the church is not open unless it is mass time. It can only stand at the door and look inside.
After visiting the Mage Temple, he walked through several alleys and climbed a slope to reach the Bishop Hill Cathedral. Although it was a bit hard to climb, the scenery was very good. The Bishop Hill Cathedral was built near the fort in 1622, and the palace was simple. It was rebuilt in 1835 and became today's magnificent scale. On the roof of the triangle stood the statue of the Virgin Mary, and on the right of the church was the bell tower, which rose into the clouds and was very solemn and solemn. On the left of the church was the bishop's office built in 1935. Flower paths around the church are secluded, ancient trees are shady, the environment is beautiful, and you can see the Macau Tower, Bridge and Zhuhai. It has become one of the favorite tourist attractions for Chinese and foreign tourists.
Living near Bishop Hill, I took a walk in the morning, just in time for the Mass on Saturday morning. I entered the church for the first time and felt the solemn and solemn feeling of the sacred temple. Enjoy the scenery outside the church, and enjoy the beautiful sea-crossing bridge and sightseeing tower.
The main part of the church building is the tall gate building. On the triangular roof stands the statue of the Virgin Mary. On the right side of the church is the bell tower. The bell tower rises into the clouds. It is very solemn and solemn. Church buildings are very unique, and many new people come to take wedding photos! Standing on the hill overlooking the scenery of Macau, it is quite charming.
Come out of Zhengjia Grand Courtyard and go straight along the road sign. Climb up a steep stone road and you'll be there. It seems that the building itself is not particularly shocked, nor is it carefully looked at in a hurry. It seems to be related. There was a couple taking wedding photos at the door, which made the church a little angry. The biggest harvest is that you can overlook Macau in front of the church. The view is very broad and atmospheric. If the weather is good, the scenery will be superb.
