Historic Centre of Macao [Photo/IC]
The Historic Center of Macao includes the oldest Western architectural heritage on Chinese soil today, including 22 structures of architectural interest at Macao Peninsula and eight forelands.
Together with Macao's traditional Chinese design, it stands witness to successful East-West cultural pluralism and architectural traditions.
The center is a solid testimony of the city's missionary role in the Far East while also reflecting the dissemination of Chinese folk beliefs to the Western world.
It is the product of East-West cultural exchanges, forming the most unique blend of cultural heritage existing in China's historic cities.
The Centre was added to the list on July 15, 2005.
Address: Macao Peninsula, Macao
