Known as the “Las Vegas of the East,” The former Portuguese colony offers vacationers a unique ‘East meets West’ cultural experience with a landscape decorated with stylish Art Deco buildings side by side Chinese temples, and ancient and modern baroque churches.  At the heart of the peninsula is the Historic Center of Macau, a UNESCO World Heritage site, consisting of over 20 landmarks including the old headquarters of the British East Indies Company, the A-Ma Temple – the oldest and most famous Taoist temple in Macau, Senado Square, Dom Pedro V Theatre – one of the first western-style theatres in China, and the iconic Ruins of St. Paul’s Cathedral.
Big name franchises such as the Venetian and MGM Grand from the United States also found a home in Macau.

Statue of Kun Iam
This large-scale representation of the Goddess of Mercy is located 
at the outer harbor waterfront on Avenida do Coronel Mesquita.  The
popular  Buddhist goddess plays a special role in protecting children and 
bringing in wealth.
Ruins of St. Paul’s
The cathedral was designed by an Italian priest and 
built primarily by Japanese craftsmen from 1582 to 1602.   
The church facade bears a Latin cross and the  
bronze statue of Jesus Christ is surrounded by 
lilies and chrysanthemums. 

 With its distinctive multicultural legacy and modern developments, Macau has something for every vacationer, whether one prefers sampling Portuguese delicacies like caldo verde (potato and greens in soup) and bacalhau (salt cod) in Taipa village, getting acquainted with the giant statues of Matsu, Goddess of the Sea, and Kun Iam, Goddess of Mercy, or simply admiring the view atop the Macau Tower.

St. Anthony’s Church or Igreja de Santo Antonio
It is considered the very first church in Macau, built originally in 1588.    
The present church is built in the Neoclassical style, around 1930.  Weddings
are often held here so much so that it earned a Chinese nickname
‘Fa Vong Tong’ meaning Church of Flowers.  St. Anthony is the favorite 
saint among seamen.
