Macau: Colonial Buildings and Great Food

I liked how Macau's street names are etched in blue and white tiles

Soon, there was the Moorish Barracks. We tried getting inside, but visitors weren’t allowed to go. 😦 Our next stop was the Senado Square.

Definitely a different architecture than all the others!

If you have seen photos of the Senado Square at one point, you’d be impressed with the flooring. What those photos didn’t tell was the number of people walking around, sitting or simply touring around the place. Phew! It was even difficult to grab a seat to rest.

The floor tiles were wonderful!

After walking with the crowd amid the small alleys lined with stores of cured meat, we were at St. Paul’s Ruins.This ended our heritage walking tour of Macau. We headed back to the Pousada de Mong-Ha to prepare for our flight back home.
