  • It was about the barracks that the Italians designed. Because it was a building that did not feel a military atmosphere at all, I thought it was a school or a temple at first. Not to mention the nice pale yellow building, i thought that the stone wall at the bottom of the building was even more beautiful. Because it is on the hill, it is a little troublesome in the access side.

  • It's a very different building from Korea, so it's a great place to stay. It's also a good time to walk along the road.

  • The Moorish Barracks is one of the UNESCO World Heritage attractions in the Historic Centre of Macau. However, it is one of the member sites that is not normally open to the public. During most Chinese New Year (CNY) Day (Jan-Feb), the 238-metre dragon parades its way through the Historic Centre of Macau, making stops at specific landmark buildings, including the Moorish Barracks for a few minutes, allowing visitors some great photograph opportunities. The dragon passes by the Moorish Barracks after calling upon at St. Lawrence Church. it stops here briefly before continuing onward to Barra Square. If you are following the dragon through the Historic City Centre, be ready to move with the crowd of photographers after each picture as the dragon moves surprisingly quick for its size. Note: If we have a sunny day, it can be difficult difficult to take picture of the dragon as it pauses and curls in front of the Moorish Barracks as the sun is directly in front of you. If this is the case, simply move down the street a bit and change your angle. If you go past the barracks, you can take pictures as the dragon passes by, this is probably the best photography angle on sunny days.
  • Can’t access into the building. The facade itself is stunning and can see that it was built to be felt home away from home for the soldiers from Goa.
