A beautiful and well maintained historic centre that oozes with charm and Portuguese style. This is a significant centre and reflects the historical significance and importance of Macau.

If you're a Spanish or Portuguese living in Asia, you cannot miss this small part of the world that lead you directly to our favourite places so long from here. I really enjoyed the colorful streets, the arquitechture, the history and the ambience all around.

Very busy streets, lots of buildings to see, churches, etc. Did not feel too threatened, but we had been warned to be careful of pick-pockets.

Hi, The sites of the Central Macau are cobble stoned so may not be practical. It is flat for some of the way then there is a steep hill to the Church ruins. Plus it is very crowded. I would not recommend the visit
