Ilha Verde (Chinese: 青洲), literally meaning "Green Island", is an area in the northwest of Macau Peninsula, Macau that forms part of the Our Lady Fatima Parish. It was formerly an island to the west of the Macau Isthmus, and was connected to Macau Peninsula in 1895 when a causeway (now Avenida do Conselheiro Borja) was built.[1]
