Old Protestant Cemetery Reviews
조용하고 신비로운 곳이에요. 저는 묘지 방문이 처음인데 신기했어요. 뭔가 경건해지는 마음도 들고 색다른 시간이었습니다. more »It's a quiet and mysterious place. I was new to the cemetery and it was amazing. It was a different time with a feeling of reverence.
中に入ることはできませんでした。見る教会カトリックばかりなのでプロテスタントの人はどうしているのだろう……。と思っておりました。ちょっとみつけ難いところにありました more »Could not get inside. I wonder what the Protestant people are doing because they are just Catholic churches. I thought. It was a little hard to find.
The only Protestant cemetery in the traditionally Catholic Macau. Eerily quiet and soul searching
The Old Protestant Cemetery is found on Camoes Square along with fellow World Heritage attractions, Casa Garden, St. Anthony's church and the non-World Heritage Camoes Garden and Grotto. It is a nice inclusion to the Macau World Heritage collection, being the location where you can find the burial sites of the historical figures Robert Morrison and George Chinnery. We enjoy visiting the Old Protestant Cemetery from time to time to see the Chinnery burial marker, being a bit of a fan of his work. You can see Chinnery's pieces as part of a permanent exhibition at the Macau Museum of Art as well. Other foreign protestants as well as prominent members of the East India Company, which operated just next door in the building located in Casa Garden, are buried here as well. You can see grave markets back as far as the 1760s at the Old Protestant Cemetery. There is a small chapel that can be visited at this location as well. However, it is less interesting than many of the World Heritage churches that can be visited around the Historic Centre of Macau. Overall, the Old Protestant Cemetery is a nice visit to make if you intend to visit the cluster of World Heritage attractions found at Cameos Square. Unfortunately, it is not as convenient to visit compared to the more centrally located attractions in the main part of the city centre. As such, we don't normally recommend a visit here for those just making a day trip. However, if you are in Macau and intend to see each of the Macau World Heritage collection, this one makes a nice stop. For another very good cemetery visit experience, you can visit St. Micheal's Chapel and Cemetery (also known locally as Cemeterio do Sao Miguel Arcanjo) located near Tap Seac Square east of the city center.
