Food and shops enclose it.This is were we tasted the MEat jerky and the famous Egg Tarts. So good. I like the mosaic wave pattern design flooring which makes it iconic. It is the best... More

Anyone visiting Macau who is interested in architecture should visit this square, where quite a variety of it is on display, influenced primarily by Macau's Portuguese colonial history. The pavers on which you will walk form an interesting pattern themselves, which complements the buildings well.

This is one of the places that worth visiting during the day & at night coz you get to see it in different lights. There're seatings at the fountain that you can rest & relax at night after strolling around town, while you just can't miss its day view if you wanna take picture here.

Nowhere is the portugese origin better visible than in this area, this is the starting point for Your walk up (past ´San Domingo´-church) to either the fort or the Sao Paulo- ruins. Well kept, everything renovated, many shops.

This review is quite late. The Largo do Senado (Senate Square) is a beautiful place offering excellent photo opportunities and is good to visit both in broad daylight or at night time when it is illuminated with colorful lights. This square has an eye-catching pavement designed like waves. You can have a seat in one of the benches to enjoy... More

The stunning yellow buildings make a great picture and are so reminiscent of Europe, it is a great "trip" from the rest of Asia. The walk to nearby shops, bakeries and noodle stands also makes it special. A trip here should definitely be on the list no matter where in Macau you are visiting as it is easy to get... More
