Plan of Macau in the late 19th century with stylized built-up typical of a plan. The major civil, religious and military buildings are colored red; however others are also identified such as pagodas, cemeteries, churches, hospitals, gardens and beaches. The built environment is in the south of the small peninsula, while the north-east corner is still cultivated. All streets and lanes are shown and most are named. The north-east corner of the island was untouched at this point with the Green Island present with the cement factory identified.
