It was a part of our macau heritage tour and thus explored this place. Read all the history about this place. Unfortunately we can only see it from the outside and entry is prohibited inside.

Wonderful architecture and a truly spectacular building. Enjoy the outside as the building is not a museum.

We continued our tour of Macau heritage after A-Ma Temple by foot using the Macau Heritage Trial of Historic Centre of Macau map downloaded from the web as guide. A piece of advice for those with weak leg and poor stamina, it was a long ascend to the hill road to the entrance of Moorish Barracks. We arrived at this heritage which was built in 1874 from the back of the building. From the web literature, the building housed 200 soldiers recruited from Goa to help support Macau's police force. The Quartel dos Mouros is now the head office of the Macau Port Authority. Stll standing tall the Moorish Barracks is majestic for its age.

We were on our way to A-Ma Temple when we noticed the Moorish barracks, a wonderful building where troops were stationed. The barracks were constructed in 1874 to accommodate Indian soldiers from Goa. The building has an Arabic/Gothic design, unusual for Macau. In 1905 it became the headquarters of the Port Authority, but unfortunately visitors can only walk around the outside, and cannot enter.

It you get along accidentally, pop in, otherwise, it’s not worth it to go all the way. All in all the building looks not very attractive.

the building is old and renovated, looking good outside, but it is not possible to see it inside as it is occupied by some authorities, not far from A-Ma Temple

The Moorish Barracks is quite a striking and handsome building, set high above the street. However, you are only able to see just the very first room of the interior, which contains some interesting nautical artifacts and a bit about its history (which is quite interesting). The rest is unfortunately off-limits! Too bad-- I really wanted to see more.

Designed by an Italian architect and located uphill from the A-Ma temple, the barracks were built in the second half of the nineteenth century to house an Indian Regiment brought in to reinforce the local Police force and now form a part of the Historic Center of Macau.

The building is now painted yellow and white and is raised above street level. A wide gallery with pointed arches running around it allows good visibility while providing shade from the intense Macau Sun.

Worth a visit if you are in Macau.

It's quite far end of Macau and there's really nothing there but an office building that you can't enter. Don't bother to go.

While visitors are limited to what can be visited inside the building, it is worth walking by to glimpse a part of Macau's association with the larger Portuguese Empire, as this building housed Portuguese Indian (from Goa) forces who made up part of the police force.
