Nice place for photos and many shops to buy gifts... Many local shops around thus price is reasonable.

This place is well preserved with all the bones of the priests who got burned. A place to visit for learning and information. A must see place when in Macau.

Definite visit to this place and the history museum close by to understand the past of Macau. The walk through the old town is a must while visiting this place
