Macau is viewed from the high ground near the tip of the peninsula, looking north-east towards the Chinese mainland; the convent on Penha Hill appears at the extreme right. In the distance the curve of the Praya Grande sweeps away to the right, with the convent of S.
Francisco at its point and Guia Hill above. On the left are Portuguese vessels at anchor in the Inner Harbour, with Ilha Verde beyond. In the city the striking façade to the left of centre is that of the church
of S. Paulo, whose convent would be burnt down some twenty-five years later. To its right is Fort Monte, with the church of S. Domingos beneath.
