Beyond Hong Kong – Macau
Seamlessly blending Portuguese and Chinese culture, Macau is a city of unique charm, exemplified by the UNESCO World Heritage site status of its historic centre. Dramatically contrasting with the centre’s old-world charm are the city’s world-class hotels and resorts, expansive tourism and entertainment facilities, luxurious shopping malls and state-of-the-art convention and exhibition venues.
Macau also offers mouth-watering cuisine, glittering night views and a calendar packed full of events, including the Macau Arts Festival, Macau International Dragon Boat Races, Macau International Fireworks Display Contest, Macau Food Festival and Macau Grand Prix.
Ruins of St. Paul’s
The Ruins of St. Paul’s jointly refer to the facade of what was originally the Church of Mater Dei (built in 1602–1640 and destroyed by fire in 1835) and the ruins of St. Paul’s College, which stood adjacent to the church. As a whole, the Church of Mater Dei, St. Paul’s College and Mount Fortress (see below) were all Jesuit constructions and formed Macau’s ‘acropolis’. The archaeological remains of St. Paul’s College stand witness to what was Asia’s first Western-style university offering an elaborate academic programme. Nowadays, the Ruins of St. Paul’s symbolically function as an altar to the city.
The A-Ma Temple existed long before the city of Macau came into being. It consists of the Gate Pavilion, the Memorial Arch, the Prayer Hall, the Hall of Benevolence, the Hall of Guanyin, and Zhengjiao Chanlin (a Buddhist pavilion). The variety of pavilions here that are dedicated to the worship of different deities within a unified complex make A-Ma Temple an exemplary representation of the true diversity of Chinese culture, inspired by Confucianism, Taoism, Buddhism and multiple folk beliefs.
Built in conjunction with the Jesuits from 1617 to 1626, this was once Macau’s principal military defence structure. The fortress was equipped with cannons, military barracks, wells and an arsenal that held sufficient ammunition and supplies to endure a siege lasting up to two years. The fortress covers an area of 10,000 square metres and is in the shape of a trapezoid. The four corners of the fortress protrude to form bulwarks.
