A high-speed ferry brings you to Macau where youíll spend a full day acquainting yourself with the landmarks and history of this first and last Asian site under European rule. Your tour includes some of this singular cityís most renowned locations where stylized architecture lends a Portuguese air to this erstwhile colony.|
The ruins of St. Paulís Cathedral: Built in the late 16th century, St. Paulís was once the largest Catholic church in Asia. Fire later destroyed the cathedral leaving only its facade, which was carved by exiled Japanese Christians. Climb the stairs at the rear of the ruins for panoramic views from the cityís most popular sight.
Mount Fortress (World Heritage): The fortress was Macauís principal military defence structure which was built in conjunction with the Jesuits from 1617 to 1626. The fortress covers an area of 10,000 square meters in the shape of a trapezoid. It became a World Heritage site in 2005.
Section of the Old Walls: This surviving segment of the city's defence structures, built as early as 1569, is a remnant of an early Portuguese tradition of constructing defensive walls around their port settlements, done also in Africa and India. In Macau, this section bears testimony to the incorporation of local techniques and materials, especially a solid compound named chunambo, an elaborate mixture of clay, soil, sand, rice straw, crushed rocks, and oyster shells compacted in successive layers.
Na Cha Temple: This Buddhist and Taoist temple was built to worship the diety Na Tcha. This temple became a World Heritage site in 2005.
Leal Senado Square: Macauís main square is paved with a wave-patterned mosaic, which extends via St. Dominicís Church to St. Paulís and along the central avenue. In the square is a fountain, benches, cafe, and space for festival events. It is designed for pedestrians and is a popular spot for locals and visitors to meet, relax, or enjoy the surrounding Macanese architecture.
The Ma Kok Temple: Giving the city its name, this temple is the oldest of Macauís 3 major temples and is dedicated to the goddess of seafarers and fishermen.
