    Places to Visit in Macau

    The Historical Centre enlists several buildings under its name. A 17th century cathedral, the Ruins of St. Paul, remains till date a prized possession for Macau. Similarly, the Kun Iam Temple, Macau's oldest, was built in the 14th century dedicated to the Goddess of Mercy. The St. Joseph's Seminary is a beautiful baroque style establishment slightly situated away from the heart of Macau city. There is also the Mount Fortress and Mandarin's House.

    Built on elevated ground, the Guia Fort and Chapel offer breathtaking views of the city owing to its altitude. Commemorated for the military forces, it also contains artistically drawn frescoes on its walls. The Jesuits, in the ancient times, also put up the Monte Fort as a storehouse of cannons and weaponry.

    Another place in Macau worth a visit, if you have some spare time, is Taipa, a traditional village of duck farms and boat dockyards. The best way to view this town is by road/cycling. The magnificent seaside bungalows, the Taipa House Museum, the Flea Market, and the temples and churches are a delight to tour.
