澳门大三巴即圣保罗教堂的遗迹,位于澳门大巴街附近的小山丘上。 圣保罗教堂建成于1637年,整座教堂体现了欧洲文艺复兴时期建筑风格与东方建筑特色的结合,是当时东方最大的天主教堂。1835年,圣保罗教堂被一场大火烧毁,仅残存了现在的前壁部分。因为它的形状与中国传统牌坊相似,所以取名为“大三巴碑坊”。 精美绝伦的艺术雕刻,将大三巴牌坊装饰得古朴典雅。无论是牌坊顶端高耸的十字架,还是铜鸽下面的圣婴雕像和被天使、鲜花环绕的圣母塑像,都充满着浓郁的宗教气氛,给人以美的享受。 现在,大三巴牌坊已经成为澳门的象征之一,也是游客澳门之行的必到之地。 看过大三巴碑坊,游客不妨到与之相邻的古炮台城堡。登临气势雄伟、酷似欧洲古堡的古炮台城堡,人们不仅能够看到十余门巨型铸铁古炮,发思古之幽情,还可以饱览澳门全景呢。 大三巴牌坊是“澳门八景”之一,位于炮台山下,左邻澳门博物馆和大炮台名胜,下连68级石阶,极显巍峨壮观。大三巴牌坊为圣保禄教堂遗址(“三巴”即“圣保禄”的粤语音译)。该教堂始建于1637年,先后经历3次大火,屡焚屡建,直至1835年10月26日,最后一场大火将其烧得只剩下教堂正门大墙,此墙因类似中国传统牌坊而得名“大三巴牌坊”。牌坊壁上雕塑精美,其中的中国石狮头,是西方宗教艺术与中国传统石雕艺术相结合的精品。

More About Asia

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.Text by Steve Smith.
