St. Augustine's Church is listed as a world heritage in 2005. The church was originally very simple constructed and the priests used to cover the roof with palm leaves. When the wind blew, the palm leaves flying with the wind, which looks like erected dragon's whiskers, hence the church was once called "Longxumiao".

Each year at the first weekend during lent, the enshrined Jesus's crucifixion will be transported to the lobby and then moved back on the second day. It is one of the important religious activities in Macao.

The church is facing south, with a bell tower on the back, it forms an angle with the street. Its facade is very simple. The whole building is about 17 meters high and constructed in Classical European Renaissance style. A triangular pediment is located at the top of the church and the Madonna statue was enriched on the middle shrine. The main structure of the church is brick wood.
