澳門歷史城區是中國境內現存最古老、規模最大、保存最完整和最集中的東西方風格共存建築群，當中包括中國最古老的教堂遺址和修道院、最古老的基督教墳場、最古老的西式炮台建築群、第一座西式劇院、第一座現代化燈塔和第一所西式大學等。作為歐洲國家在東亞建立的第一個永久基地，城區見證了澳門四百多年來中華文化與西方文化互相交流、多元共存的歷史。正因為中西文化共融的緣故，城區當中的大部分建築都具有中西合璧的特色。城區內的建築大部分至今仍完好地保存或保持著原有的功能。 世界遺產委員會對澳門歷史城區的評價是“見證了西方宗教文化在中國以至遠東地區的發展，也見證了向西方傳播民間宗教的歷史淵源”、“是中國現存最古老的西式建築遺產，是東西方建築藝術的綜合體現。” 由此可見，澳門歷史城區是中國境內接觸近代西方器物與文化最早、最多、最重要的地方，同時是近代西方建築傳入中國的第一站。
第一區是指從大炮台山（Monte）到西望洋山（Colina da Penha）之間 75.2688公頃（752,688平方米）面積範圍中下列登記地點：
第二區是指東望洋山（Colina da Guia）所屬 31.5222公頃（315,222平方米）面積範圍中下列登記地點：
自2005年7月澳門歷史城區列入《世界遺產名錄》以來，澳門政府對世遺的保護工作一直被社會質疑，除了東望洋燈塔景觀危機外，一些世遺建築物也在成功申遺十周年後因人為和不可抗力因素受到破壞，例如盧家大屋因相鄰的地盤塌牆而受損；媽閣廟的正覺禪林發生火警，導致神案及牌匾被燒毀及熏黑，損毀較為嚴重；聖奧斯定教堂因文化局工作疏忽或沒有足夠專業的文物安全評估而導致偏廳塌頂等。關於澳門歷史城區 - 澳門世界遺產 （页面存档备份，存于互联网档案馆）（澳門文化局建置網站）（繁體中文）（简体中文）（葡萄牙文）（英文）澳門旅遊局 （页面存档备份，存于互联网档案馆） （繁體中文）（简体中文）（葡萄牙文）（英文）
