The Old Protestant Cemetery is in the historic district of old Macau, and there is a small, white chapel on the grounds, and the cemetery itself lies below. The graves themselves are from individuals from many countries, and the oldest ones are from the late 18th century. Included on the tomb stones are not just the name, age, and dates,... More

Visiting historical places in Macau, we had time for only one final place to visit and we picked Morrison's Chapel and the Protestant Cemetery. What a wonderful choice getting away from the hustle bustle of Macau during the Golden Week. The cemetery was one of peace, solitary and serenity. While we were there, there were no other people present except... More

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... More

It is very remarkable to find in a Catholic Portuguese enclave an old Protestant Cemetery and a Protestant Church as well, the Morrisson Chapel named after Robert Morrison (1782-1834), the first Protestant missionary in China and author of the first Chinese to English dictionary as well as the first translation of the Bible into Chinese. Besides Robert Morrison, George Chinnery... More

This is a small cemetery, located two doors down from the entrance to Camoes Garden. Probably only a hundred tombstones and box tombs, they are all of a sturdy size and from pre 1900 era. It is a lovely location, with very old large trees and completely walled in from the bustle of the streets. The tombstones are quite plain... More

This cemetery is specially interesting because its style is without any doubt european, but then you remember, «oh wait, this is China!» I liked it there, it's small, but beautiful and well preserved, so you can actually analyse the graves and learn about who is there, because it is so small. It's located right next Camoes Garden, so it's pretty... More
