UNESCO World Heritage Walk
UNESCO World Heritage Walk

Macau, with its striking Sino Portuguese heritage, is like no other Asian city in the world. Fortunately, due to the foresight of the Macau government, more than 20 extraordinary European and Chinese landmarks are under UNESCO world heritage protection today. As you meander through Macau’s cobblestone streets, just a stone’s throw away from Artyzen Grand Lapa Macau, you will be stepping back in time.

One of the city’s earliest UNESCO monuments is the A-Ma Temple, an iconic religious landmark at the edge of the Macau peninsula that is dedicated to the goddess of the fisherman. Built in 1488, legend has it that Macau derived its name from A-Ma temple. When Portuguese explorers arrived on the shores of Macau in the 1500s, they asked people at the temple where they were. In response, they told them the name of A-Ma Temple in Cantonese, which sounds very much like “Macau”!

At the heart of the UNESCO historic walking trail is the Ruins of St. Paul’s façade, which stands next to Na Tcha Temple. These two landmarks are a testament to Eastern and Western faiths that have coexisted in Macau for centuries.

The Ruins of St. Paul’s, which is synonymous with Macau, is a symbol of East and West. Built by Japanese and Chinese craftsmen, the façade is decorated with European and Asian religious symbolism. Originally built in the 1600s as the region’s largest church in Asia, the entire building comprised the St. Paul’s College and Church of St. Paul. Unfortunately due to a fire, only the façade remains standing today.

Right next door to the Ruins of St. Paul’s is a small, Taoist temple known as the Na Tcha Temple. Na Tcha is a child god that has compassion for children. The temple was built in 1888, during the time of the plague. People prayed to Na Tcha to protect children from the pandemic.

Bela Vista
Bela Vista

The Bela Vista is a legend that lives on within Artyzen Grand Lapa Macau. Bela Vista takes its name from the stunning views this extraordinary building of neoclassical design enjoys from the top of Penha Hill. Today it is a UNESCO-protected landmark and is also the residence of the Portuguese Consul.

In the past, Bela Vista played many important roles. It was not only a hotel, but also served as a school, retreat centre for British soldiers and a place of refuge. It is believed to have been built in 1870, and later sold to a British sea captain in 1890. It officially took on the name of “Hotel Bela Vista” in 1936, and would go on to serve as a safe haven for many left stranded during the war. Once the war was over, it was refurbished into a magnificent hotel by the Mandarin Oriental Group, which also formerly managed Grand Lapa.

In its heyday, the Bela Vista Hotel served as one of the locations for Pierce Brosnan’s “Around the World in 80 Days”. It was also frequented by British author, Austin Coates who wrote City of Broken Promises and may very well have written A Macau Narrative and other books from his favourite room overlooking the governor’s mansion.

George Smirnoff

While you are at Café Bela Vista, we hope you might take a moment to look at the watercolour paintings along the walls of our café. Russian architect and artist George Smirnoff captured many of Macau’s buildings and streetscapes while he resided here in the 1940s. The legendary Bela Vista was a refuge for him and his family during the war, and was Smirnoff’s first home in Macau.

Symbolically today, reproductions of his beautiful watercolour paintings are now at “home” on display at Café Bela Vista. He was commissioned by Dr. Pedro Jose Lobo, a great benefactor of the arts at the time to paint the tranquility of the city, the churches, fortresses, seascapes and street scenes. Smirnoff was able to recreate a remarkable likeness of what he saw on the streets and he would sketch and colour everything from memory. His daughter, Irina Smirnoff says her father’s life in Macau was very special, as that was a time when he was truly at peace.

Window of Tomar
Window of Tomar

The arts and culture play an integral role in the design and décor at Artyzen Grand Lapa Macau, and as you ascend the grand staircase of the hotel lobby, you will discover an extraordinary replica of the “Window of Tomar” on display.

The original Window at the Convent of Christ in Tomar, Portugal was carved in stone in 1510 and symbolises the heroism of seafarers during the Age of Discovery. It is also considered a masterpiece of Manueline art.

The replica at Artyzen Grand Lapa Macau is one-third the size of the original at four metres high, two metres wide and weighs 400 kilograms. The first of its kind, the replica was carved by a team of artists at Lisbon's famous Fundação Ricardo Espirito Santo.

It took the team 3,650 hours to recreate the intricate carvings, which represent the faith and experiences of the Portuguese pioneers on their sea voyages. The upper part of the replica features an astrolabe (an old navigational tool), which guided them into Macau in the 16th century.
