Ka Ho Village is an old leper colony from 1885 when the then ruling government decided to outcast those suffering from leprosy to stop the spread of the disease. What’s left now is a mostly untouched and unexplored area of Macau. It is soon to be an arts center and touristic site, with five buildings already restored.
However, there are other points of interest: unrestored houses built by the suffers (where they lived as well) as late as the 1930s but left untouched since the abolishment of the colony and The Chapel of Our Lady of Sorrows (the old Ka Ho Leprosy Centre renamed in 1966). Ka Ho Village is a historical center to explore and consider religion, otherness, and society.
