#2 of 45 in Historic Sites in Macau
Journey through the diverse and dynamic history of the region in Historic Centre of Macau, a collection of over 20 cultural and historical sites. Stroll down the main historic street and visit the numerous old buildings, displaying colonial Portuguese and Chinese architectural styles in varying contrasts and combinations. Town squares, churches, and temples offer showcase routes into the colonial era in Macau, with each site offering a wealth of information on panels and signs. There are a range of historical tour options available. Added to the World Heritage List in 2005, the area stands as a testament to the co-existence and appropriation of two distinct cultural, architectural, aesthetic, and technological influences. The site represents one of the earliest and best-maintained examples of the meeting of China and the West.

Where to stay in Macau

Cotai Strip in Macau offers luxury hotels, with famous names providing rooms looking out over the harbor and down into the historical center. Establishments in this area also feature onsite entertainment options and Vegas-style casinos. Look for more affordable options north of Nam Van Lake, where chain and boutique hotels provide rooms with views of the city, the harbor, and across to China proper. Head farther north for lower rates offered by hostels and apartment rentals.
