The Holy House of Mercy on Senado Square
Macau offers vacationers a unique mix of Western and Eastern influences through its baroque churches, Art Deco buildings, and Chinese temples. In 2005, the Historic Center of Macau, located in the center of the peninsula, was named a UNESCO World Heritage site. It consists of historic residential, religious, and public Portuguese and Chinese architectural legacies including the A-Ma Temple, Senado Square, Dom Pedro V Theater, Na Tcha Temple, Casa Garden, the Old Protestant Cemetery and the old headquarters of the British East Indies Company.
In recent years, Macau has welcomed on its reclaimed land a number big name casinos, including the Venetian and MGM Grand from the United States, making itself known in Asia as the “Las Vegas of the East”. But amid these modern developments, Macau still maintains its Old World charm albeit with its own characteristic multicultural fusion and invites visitors to immerse in it whether through the partaking of Portuguese delicacies like caldo verde (potato and greens in soup) and bacalhau (salt cod) in Taipa village, seeing the the giant statues of Matsu, Goddess of the Sea, and Kun Iam, Goddess of Mercy, or simply admiring the view atop the Macau Tower.
