The historical city area extends from Wangyang Mountain in the east, Xinma Road to the Inner Harbor Wharf in the west, Mage Mountain in the south, and Baige Nest Park in the north. It is the oldest, largest, most well-preserved, and most concentrated historical city in China where Chinese and Western characteristic buildings coexist. It is the culmination of cultural exchanges and diverse coexistence between China and the West for more than 400 years. The Historic District of Macau was included in the "World Cultural Heritage List" by UNESCO in 2005.
worth to try walking around this area because this historic spot is very beautiful. may shops to buy some items and some souvenirs.
After you visit the remains of the church, walk down the narrow street to get to the Historic Centre of Macau. Here you will be able to see many of the Portuguese buildings, most of which are Unesco World Heritage sites. There is a fountain in the square, and lots of things happening all the time. There are little shops down the side streets if you want to do some shopping too.
Well worth a visit and the highlight of our trip to Macau. You must get an audio guide from the Macau Tourist Centre (located in the main square). Is is available in a number of languages and it is free. You need to pay 200 MP deposit which is refunded once returned. You get the audio guide for 2days. Following a map, the guide educated us on many different places, including St. Paul's and the fort. We also went to places which we wouldn't have gone to otherwise, as we did not know they existed. Really enjoyed the mix between the Portuguese and Chinese. Enjoy walking the streets, listening to the history and grab a piping hot egg tart!
