Cintra Street

Cintra Street is a road in George Town that connects both Kimberley Street and Chulia Street. Cintra apparently refers to the Portuguese word for “Port” and the street has its root traced back to early Eurasians who settled here. Back in the old days during the 19th century, the street was also known for its Japanese geisha establishments or the Karayuki-san.

There is also a steel rod art sculpture found along this street.
