カモンエス広場の前の静かな教会で墓地としては既に停止して現在は史跡となっている。ロバートモリソン（1782～1834年）は1807年にイギリスからマカオに来て最初にプロテスタントを中国に広めた人で、初めて聖書を中国語に翻訳、最初に中国辞典を作った人物でもある。カモンエス広場とは対照的にとても静かな教会でゆっくりと中を見学できた。 more »As the cemetery in the quiet church in front of the Camoes Square has already stopped and now has become a historic site. Robert Morrison (1782 – 1834) was the first person to come to the Macau S.A.R. from England in 1807 and spread the Protestants to China, the first to translate the Bible into Chinese, and the person who originally created the Chinese dictionary.

Beautiful quiet chapel, symbol of religious freedom
You can find the simple Protestant Chapel (also referred to as the Morrison Chapel) at Camoes Square in Macau. This is the location of several World Heritage attractions including the Protestant Cemetery which is situated around the walled Protestant Chapel. The chapel was built to serve the small population of protestants, mainly British and American that settled in early Macau, which was dominated by European colonists of the Catholic faith. Here you find a small, single room house of worship with several rows of pews and and a modest alter. There exterior of the building is simple, white washed structure that most will glance right past as they make their way back to see the historic cemetery, which is the main reason for visiting here. This is where you find the tomb for the famous artist, George Chinnery as well as Robert Morrison. You can comfortably visit the cemetery and take a look inside the chapel in 10 minutes before making your way to other World Heritage attractions and sightseeing endeavours in the area.
