The Military Club is one of several in Macau, and I'm not really sure what purpose it currently serves. Macau is not currently a militarily strategic place right now, but back during the dictatorship's day, the Portuguese military was as important for internal reasons as for external defence. It had a fairly important role in society, which explains the rather extravagant nature of this structure. Its pink walls and wide veranda make it seem much more like some sort of country club than a military establishment. Today, it is still a club (and likely a haunt for the city's former Portuguese soldiers), but its prestige as a military establishment is long since gone.
