A-Ma Temple
The A-Ma Temple dates back to 1488, when it was constructed on the Macau Peninsula. One of Macau’s most important religious sites, this Buddhist temple is part of the Historic Center of Macau, a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Dom Pedro V Theatre
Dom Pedro V Theatre is located at Largo de Santo Agostinho and features a neo-classical design. Macau’s first Western-style theater, the institution serves as a venue for public events and celebrations.
