Macau During the Ming Dynasty


The history of the first hundred years of Macau, between the mid 16th and mid 17th centuries, raises fascinating challenges.
Macau´s emergence between 1555 and 1557 resulted from the encounter of the traditional international maritime world of the China seas with the newfound Portuguese presence. It offered an alternative solution to the official tributary trade of Ming China and the informal private pirate trade.
A port city with a complex status gathered strenght over the following decades. A city with international port services that had key economic and cultural functions.
