Macau c1400 32



Occupied by the Portuguese for almost five centuries, Macau was returned to China in 1999.

Contrary to what happens in Hong Kong, where the signs of British occupation are rapidly disappearing, here the Portuguese presence was preserved, and the harmonious coexistence of both cultures was recognized by UNESCO, which in 2005 declared the city a World Heritage Site.

Despite its small size, Macau is a vibrant territory, to which gambling, and its forest of casinos contribute a lot.

Now, after the successful transfer to China, the signs of five centuries of Portuguese presence stay well present and enrich the city.

Highlights of Macau:

Many Portuguese remains, with evidence to St. Paul ruins, the “Senado”, palaces, churches and forts, and if you like to gamble… a wide choice!
