The Moorish Barracks were originally the barracks of Indian soldiers appointed from Goa to Macau. The building itself is an architectural masterpiece. It shows a blending of Arabian and Gothic architectural styles. It has been the office building of Macau Port Authority since the 19th century. The Italian Cassuto was the chosen architect.
The long veranda is the most appealing element, showing an Islamic color with its refreshing columns and windows. Dozens of ivory yellow pillars lead the eyes from floral barriers to the pointed arches set between columns. It is a designated part of Historic Centre of Macau, inscribed on the World Heritage List in 2005. Unfortunately, this site is not opened for visitors. The bright yellow building is located close to Lilau Square and 5 minutes away from A-Má Temple.
