Week 18 – Little Story About Macau (5/12)

week 18
SAN FRANCISCO BARRACKS

Built in 17th century, to defend Macau against outside attacks. These original fortifications were replaced by new barracks in 19th century to help protect the city. Luckily, the barracks remain untouched. No attack was ever mounted from across the border. Today, the barracks are home to the local police, as well as home to some old cannons from days long gone.

  1. It’s neat how the purpose of the barracks still remain the same, yet add a little something to the landscape🙂
