Rua do Cunha is a narrow pedestrian street in Vila da Taipa, the town centre of Taipa, Macau. It is wrong to say that the street is named after the Portuguese explorer Tristão da Cunha. According to the government of Macau, the street is named after Pedro Alexandrino da Cunha, a Portuguese navy captain who was the 81st governor of Macau for a few more days than a month. He arrived in Macau in 1850 and he died 37 days later from cholera, being one of the first victims of the disease in Macau.
It is known for shops selling almond cakes, phoenix egg rolls, coconut flakes, cherikoff, and peanut candy, which travellers buy as "souvenirs", such as Choi Heong Yuen and Koi Kei. It is also known for its various Portuguese restaurants, including 'O Santos', which has been in business for 20 years, and 'O Galo'.
