The Historic Center is too commercialized now. But, it still keeps as much as the history of Macau. But, it is only a starting point for you to understanding Macau. If you like to see how a city in the east built like some small...More

Very nice and well-maintained area of the city with many lovely buildings, but without crowds of tourists rushing through (at least when we were there). One of the most enjoyable places in Macau we visited.

We can tell Macau history from the building and the surrounded environment. You can feel the acculturation of Portuguese and Chinese culture in their city that reflected in the street, language, lifestyle etc. The result is a very beautiful mix culture of Asian and Europe...More

Hi, The sites of the Central Macau are cobble stoned so may not be practical. It is flat for some of the way then there is a steep hill to the Church ruins. Plus it is very crowded. I would not recommend the visit
