One of three World Heritage attractions at Camoes Square north of the Ruins of St. Paul, this is was the burial site of the early community of Protestants that settled in the Portuguese colony. The cemetery dates back to the early 19th century. It includes two levels and 162 tombs including British painter George Chinnery, who spend much of his life here in Macau and Robert Morrison, for whom the small chapel upon the site is named. Do have a brief look inside the chapel if it is open at the time of your visit. Due to the more isolated location of Camoes Square, a visit to the Old Protestant Cemetery is a lower priority for those with limited time.

Interesting to see this space in Macau -- not easy to get to from the main attractions in the city, but if you're walking around in the area stop by and spend a few minutes looking around and reading some of the inscriptions on the grave stones.

This is a very magical place with a spiritual feel. If you are in the area then it's well worth a visit. Especially moving are the children's graves.
