Dating back to 1869, Mandarin's House is a historic residential complex built by Zheng Wenrui and expanded by his sons. This Cantonese-style structure blends Western décor into the architecture and is one of the largest former family houses in Macau. Although more than 300 tenants once rented home here and created poor building conditions, the government eventually seized the complex and established it as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
