Situated at the mouth of the Pearl river, Macau is the oldest European settlement in the Far East, founded as a trading port by the Portuguese in 1557. Board a high-speed catamaran to Macau, a journey of less than an hour, and discover the city of Macau beyond the casinos. Visit the ruins of St Paul, formerly one of the greatest of Macau's churches. All that remains today is its magnificent stone facade and grand staircase, now a landmark in the city. Climb to the hilltop Penha Church to enjoy sweeping views over the inner harbour and city. Be sure to visit the Temple of Goddess A-Ma (Ma Kok temple), from where the name Macau originated, the Senado Square in the Unesco-listed Historic Centre of Macau, and the Grand Lisboa Casino.
