Macau’s historical center is a UNESCO world heritage site. It’s basically very Portuguese. The ruins in the picture are of a church that was dedicated to Mary, only the southern facade stands and gives it quite a fantasy-like look. Interestingly, the facade was decorated by Japanese Christians in exile during the 1600s.
A walk along Macau’s city center is quite a cultural experience with rows upon rows Chinese shops with the odd pastelaria (Portuguese style pastry shop/cafe) thrown in. The cafes do some great business as pastries seem to be a part of the local culture in Macau!
The streets are narrow and windy and go up and down, pretty much like Lisbon. It’s an interesting experience to be in a place that looks Portuguese but feels totally Chinese!
