Intangible Heritage of Macao

Macao has evolved over the past 450 years from a fishing village to trading post, manufacturing hub to international powerhouse. Despite its incredible growth and transformation, the city has safeguarded its valuable historic treasures, folk customs and east-meets-west culture. Celebrating its unique cultural tapestry, the Macao government developed a list of Intangible Cultural Heritage to establish legal protections for some of the city's most meaningful traditions and events. Following extensive consultations with the public and experts alike, the government selected 12 items that best reflect Macao's multifaceted identity. In this book, we explore each Intangible Cultural Heritage - from oral traditions to religious events, festivals, craftsmanship, performing arts, and more - to honour the traditions that have made Macau so culturally rich.
