    Carmo Fair (Old Taipa Market)

    Located on what was originally called the Rua de Derieta Carlos Eugenio, the Carmo Fair was first documented in Sept 14, 1886.

    Originally built on the water's edge, sand and silt and water effects have made the current location land-locked.

    Up until the new market was built, the Old Market was in use until 1970's. Until then, it was a focal point of food sales, mainly harvesting oysters, fish, seafood.

    Glass Eggs - Taipa Sculpture Complex

    It will not take but a short time to walk around the area and take in the sites. I went and spent ~30 minutes. In nice weather this is just a short walk from Crown Casino.

    There are a few dozen random sculptures, and the random views of the bridges leading back to Macau.
