This location looks like a bit of Portugal and has been restored. Worth a visit to discover some of the history of Macau, especially at night. Lots of shops and good restaurants in the side streets.

One thing good about Macau's tourism is they have websites about their historic centre. Once there, a map, signages on lamp posts and the brown square poles informing everybody about history in several language.

Just off the main street however it was not a spectacular view of the centre of Macau. Maybe the site was tired from Christmas celebrations however it was a letdown as a site of interest

Macau is more than just the vegas of the east with its mix of portuguese and chinese heritage so the historic centre makes for nice walk during cooler months

A great place to see old style Euro historical buildings. Those buildings are so charming that people always take pictures at this area.

This is the place when you can see a mix of Portuguese (and Chinese) heritage, and also you can buy any kind of souvenirs or foods in this place, and don't forget to bring the camera for your own memories in Macau. Definitely a worthy visit.
