The Old Protestant Cemetery is a cemetery in Macau, China. It located close to the Casa Garden and was established by the British East India Company in 1821 in Portuguese Macau in response to a lack of burial sites for Protestants in the Roman Catholic Portuguese colony.It is the last resting place of the artist George Chinnery, missionaries Robert Morrison and Samuel Dyer (his wife Maria is buried at the Old Protestant Cemetery in Penang), Royal Navy captain Henry John Spencer-Churchill (son of the 5th Duke of Marlborough and great-great-grand-uncle of Winston Churchill) and US Naval Lieutenant Joseph Harod Adams (grandson of the second president of the United States, John Adams, and nephew of the sixth, John Quincy Adams). Humphrey Fleming Senhouse, a captain in the Royal Navy, is also buried here.

  • It is a commoners Park next to the Protestant Cemetery. Macau S.A.R. was Portugal territory, but here is like between the British East India Company cemetery. Cemetery because, in a solemn atmosphere, there's no tourists, so you can take.

  • It is next to the Casa garden, facing the commoners square cemetery. I refrain from the thought of tourists bounces from smule is the cemetery's rude, just took the photo from the front of the entrance into the cemetery. In fact, no one in my other.

  • 在外面沒仔細看牌子以為這裡是座小花園,進去先穌眼簾的是一座白色小教堂,進深入一看才發現是一座小的墓園,葬的都是外國人士。不是中國普通的墓園整整齊齊的排列,不同形式的墓碑都是墓主性格的體現吧。也不會覺得普通人對墓園有陰森的感覺,只是覺得這裡很Peace。 
  • Famous people who are laid down here.
  • 寧謐美麗,可以去散散步。
  • 很不錯
