ATTRACTIONS

Grand Prix Museum

This Museum was built as a tribute to the people who made the Grand Prix what it is today, namely Teddy Yip, Paul Du Toit, Laurel, Ayrton Senna and John Corsmit, among others.

Camões Garden

In the 18th century, this hilly, heavily treed garden houses an art gallery, and the Old Protestant Cemetery that is filled with walkways, flowering trees, and old headstones, marking the graves of merchants and missionaries.

Temples

Na Tcha Temple

Built in 1888 and dedicated to Na Cha in an attempt to halt the plague rampaging at the time. The Na Tcha Temple is only small, built with simple materials, but the use of a mixture of reality and illusion in its design manages successfully to create a sense of delicacy and exquisiteness.

Sam Kai Vui

This temple is on the site of the old Macao bazaar, whose sign still exists. Originally it was a meeting place for merchants, and was very important to the local Chinese community.

Islands

Coloane Island

The island of Coloane—with its deserted coves, rugged cliffs, large sea caves, and densely forested hills,—proved a convenient base for pirates who preyed on the rich cargoes coming into the island. Today its sandy beaches, hiking trails and other outdoor attractions make it a pleasurable retreat. Who knows if you look hard enough what you might find.

Taipa Island

In the 18th and early 19th centuries, Taipa consisted of two hilly islands and a protected harbour which provided a safe place to lay anchor for ships and Indiamen engaged in trade with China. Smaller vessels would transship the cargoes of muslin, manufactured goods and opium up the Pearl River to Canton and return with tea, silk, and porcelain for export around the world. Taipa is now once again an international gateway with the opening of the Macau International Airport.

Ruins of St. Paul's Cathedral

Take a guided tour of Macau's most famous landmark, the ruins of this 16th-century cathedral, which features a spectacular facade with intricate carvings by Japanese monks.

Monte Forte

Built in the 16th century by the Jesuits and later used as a military base, this fort will leave you wondering, and your imagination soaring.

Guided tours available and booking is essential. Visit the incredible temples and bask in the glory of their wonderful architecture.
