Lonely Planet review
These former barracks (c 1874) on Barra Hill were designed by an Italian in a neoclassical style inspired by Moorish architecture, to accommodate 200 Muslim Indian policemen from Goa. The confusion of Muslims with Moors is unfortunate, but it’s also interesting because of its connection to dated Cantonese which refers to Indians as ‘moh loh cha’ (‘moh loh’ being a transliteration of ‘Moorish’). The barracks now house the Macau Maritime Administration (澳門港務局大樓). Turn right as you leave A-Ma Temple; a 10-minute walk uphill will take you here.
