Historic Center of Macao
fusion of eastern and western civilization
The Historic Center of Macao is a collection of monuments and sites that have witnessed the unique combination and co-existence of eastern and western cultures in Macao since the settlement of the Portuguese navigators in the mid-16th century. It is the city's cultural heritage, including monuments such as urban squares, streetscapes, churches and temples.
