The main square is definitely worth seeing. The buildings have been preserved well, and you just have to look past the logos of the businesses that have taken over them. at least there are a few buildings that remind you of a glorious past. This is about it. Most of the rest of Macau is a cross between a shinty... More

But not for long. Sadly more and more of Macau's history is disappearing, so come and visit while there is still something to see. It's beautiful and historic, and especially so in the early morning and evening. During the day it's pretty much a shopping mall.

Great place to visit. Interesting culturally. Great places for food too! Many hotels have free shuttles to and from here. Explore the nearby Senado Square.

One of the Unesco spots; easy accessible and you won't possibly miss it when you are in Macau. Recommended!

We enjoyed a few hours wondering around the historic centre of Macau - lovely to see what it used to look like, we considered a guide, but is pricey - and also, we wanted to meander at our own pace - signage is very good, easy to navigate, wear comfy shoes, lovely afternoon. Must see for anyone vaguely interested in... More

The décor is just like Italy!!!! How similar they are, shops are also friendly to visit, I tried a very nice egg tart in the mall too!

We spend a very interesting day wandering around the old town centre of Macau visiting the sights and enjoying the atmosphere. It is mainly pedestrianised but not completely do it is very easy to get a taxi if you want to move between areas. Apart from the sights there are tourist shops, Portuguese custard tart shops, clothes shops and food... More

Lots to see and do in the Historic Centre. Allocate 90 min to 2 hours and wear good walking shoes as uneven pathway. Look for small green / brown signs on some of the street corners which point to the sights. Food , culture and history all blended into a buzzy place.
