Feast of Pak Tai

 Apr 18

Performances of Chinese opera are usually held in a mat-shed at the Pak Tai Temple in Taipa village.

誕期在農曆三月初三,北帝又稱玄武大帝,傳說他統管北方,又是水神。

According to legend, Pak Tai conquered Demon King, who was terrorizing the universe. As a reward he was given the title of Superior Divinity of the Deep Dark Heaven and True Soldier of the North.

昔日,氹仔島上大部份是漁民,他們對掌管水族的北帝尤其祟拜,所以在當地修建了北帝 廟,它是全澳唯一供奉北帝的廟宇。

As a reward he was given the title of Superior Divinity of the Deep Dark Heaven and True Soldier of the North. Chinese opera is performed by his temple on Taipa.

慶賀北帝誕的傳統還延續到今天,這裡的居民每逢誕期都會在廟前舉行盛大的賀誕活動,包括一連幾晚的神功戲及燒香酬神等活 動,氣氛頗為熱鬧。

St. Lawrence’s Church

rBuilt by the Jesuits in the mid-16th century, this is one of the three oldest churches in Macao.

創建於16世紀中葉,是澳門三大古教堂之一。

Its present appearance and scale was acquired in 1846.

目前的規模形成於1846年。

Situated on the southern coastline of Macao overlooking the sea, families of Portuguese sailors used to gather on the front steps of the church to pray and wait for their return, hence it was given the name:Feng Shun Tang (Hall of the Soothing Winds).

華人稱之為“風順堂”,有祈求“風調雨順”之意。

The neighbourhood where the church is located used to be fairly wealthy, thus explaining the building’s scale and wealth of architectural treatment. It is a neo-classical structure, with subtle Baroque decorative inspirations.

教堂所在的地區昔日是高尚住宅區,所以教堂建築也顯得美侖美奐,教堂外觀的特徵是在歐洲古典式的基礎上帶有巴洛克風格。

Lotus Square

Standing in Lotus Square next to the Forum, the large sculpture of “Lotus Flower In Full Bloom” presented by the State Council of China in 1999, marks the return of sovereignty of Macao.

一九九九年十二月二十日,澳門回歸祖國的第一天,由中國國務院贈送的大型鑄銅貼金雕塑”盛世蓮花”於綜藝館前金蓮花廣場揭幕。

The lotus flower, which is in full bloom, symbolizes the everlasting prosperity of Macao. There are three layers of red granite at the base, which are in the shape of lotus leaves, signifying the Macao Peninsula, Taipa Island and Coloane Island.

蓮花盛開象徵澳門永遠繁榮昌盛。三層紅色花崗岩相疊的基座,形似蓮葉,寓意澳門三島。
