A very interesting place to visit with all its history.

Great for those who like to walk and visit the colonial past

One of the interesting things to see before or after your visit to the Ruins of St. Paul's is the small section of the 16th-century Old Wall which has been preserved and rests next to the Ruins and Na Tcha Temple.

Here you will find around a 10 metre stretch of the historic defensive structure used during the early colonial days to protect inhabitants of Macau from invasion. The wall is built in a manner typical of Portuguese trading port settlements during past centuries. You can get a good look at its construct when walking through the small hole in the wall.

Have a quick look at the remaining fragment of the Old Wall and then carry on with other intended sightseeing in the area.

I am not sure if there is any more of the wall remaining in Macau but next to Na Tcha Temple there is a small section of the red bricked wall. The wall was constructed from 1569 to protect the city against Chinese and Dutch invaders.

The old walled city is a good visit to ancient Macau, but don't expect too much.

One can see the walls while visiting Saint Paul's Ruins, but one can take a little more time and begin to understand the history and progression of the relationship between the Portuguese and the Chinese.

Take the time.

The views over Macau from the walls are panoramic and provide an excellent spot for photographers. The site is very well maintained with gun emplacements and cannon still in place.There is a escalator to assist with the steep climb up to the fort area. If it is not operating the many steps can be quite tiring so be prepared.

Went up this area to have a better view of the city. The hike was worth it! Be sure to bring water bottles to keep yourself hydrated especially during summer.

Well maintained old city walls from the Portuguese times, nice to walk around on a nice day. You can get a very good view of the city from the top of the walls. If you have time you should visit the museum as well.

An interesting inclusion in the Macau World Heritage collection is the small remaining segment of the Old City Wall, found at the back of the Ruins of St. Paul, next to the small Na Tcha Temple.

This wall fragment reaches back to the mid 16th century when it would have formed a protective fortification for the Portuguese settlement at that time. As such, while not being much to see these days, it forms an important bridge to the distant colonial past of early Portuguese Macau.

An interesting thing to see at the Old City Wall is the small exhibition room that is now located within the wall. This room is a showcase for the Na Tcha Temple and provides some context into the folklore God of War called Na Tcha who is something of a unique idol here in Macau.

Overall, the Old City Wall is a quick stop only and will be most interesting to those who want to learn and discover more about Macau's oldest Portuguese presence in Macau. You can visit comfortably in just a few minutes before moving on to other sightseeing interests in this part of the city.

This review is quite late. It does not take much of your time to visit the Old Walled City especially if you are seeing Na Tcha Temple which is located within the same area. Nothing much is left from the old walls but it is still worthing doing the trip to complete your tour of the Historic Centre of Macau.

This huge wall is part with the others spot here around of the UNESCO world heritage site, near the ruins of St. Paul. There is very little to see I suggest don't waste time to see this and over time that can be used to visit the rest of the historical centre, but in case few minutes however, you can also dedicate to admire it.
