Photographer's Note

This is the Church of Saint Domingos, originally built in 1578 in timber and rebuilt in bricks at 17th century. In this place was pressed the first newspaper in Portuguese in China (1822).
Pay attention in the patterns of the ground, a typical Portuguese design.
While in India the colonial Portuguese monuments are abandoned and in ruins, in Macau all churches I found were restored.
................

Essa é uma vista da Igreja de São Domingos, originalmente erguida em 1578 em madeira e reconstruída em tijolos no século 17. Nesse local foi impresso o primeiro jornal escrito em português da China, em 1822.
Reparem no desenho da calçada, tipicamente português.
Enquanto na Índia os monumentos coloniais portugueses estão desabando em ruínas, em Macau todas as igrejas que encontrei estavam muito bem restauradas.
