Freguesia da Sé is a southeast parish of the Macau Peninsula. It is the second largest peninsular district in Macau after Our Lady of Fatima Parish. The parish area is named for Igreja da Sé.

Its western part is the historic financial centre of Macau. Praia Grande Central Business District (南灣中心商業區) is in south-central part of the district. All of the banks (over 20) in Macau have offices here.

Quality restaurants, 4-star and 5-star hotels are mostly located in this district. High-rise buildings are located on the eastern part, which was reclaimed from sea. The eastern edge is the Hong Kong-Macau Ferry Terminal.
