Coloane Village (Vila De Coloane in Portuguese) is an ancient village on offshore island -Coloane Island, which was initially a fishing village and trading port of Guangdong Province in the Ming (1368-1644) and the Qing (1636 -1911) dynasties. Coloane Village was threated by pirates during the Qing Dynasty (1636 -1911), and the Portuguese army defeated pirates successfully in 1910, therefore, visitors can still see a vast memorial in front of Franciscan Church.
