Mandarin's House, Macau
(4.3/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
Dating back to 1869, Mandarin's House is a historic residential complex built by Zheng Wenrui and expanded by his sons. This Cantonese-style structure blends Western décor into the architecture and is one of the largest former family houses in Macau. Although more than 300 tenants once rented home here and created poor building conditions, the government eventually seized the complex and established it as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Make Mandarin's House part of your personalized Macau itinerary using our Macau travel itinerary maker.

  • We stumbled across this beautiful place while visiting Lilau Square and found it to be yet another example of the pride and care that Macau has taken to care for and showcase it's history and beauty. In streets so vastly juxtaposed against the opulence of the casinos this is a treasure for those who endeavour to see this town for what it is.
  • After becoming lost in amongst the streets of old Macau - we stumbled upon this treasure. A beautiful home that has been restored, hard to opine that people practiced to live there that long ago. Easily read short plaques on the walls give information about the history of the mansion and the renovation. Definitely worth a visit.
  • Beautiful architecture of an old house in Macau. Too bad that there's not a lot of furniture left.
  • An interesting historical project.
  • rich history here. completely fascinating
