Not one to miss when in Macau. Taking a stroll along the beautiful and historical town is definitely a must do! The square is busy with locals and tourists altogether. Food stalls lining the street all the way to the Ruins of St Paul cathedral and beyond. Whether you're a foodie or not, this place offers Macau's best Portuguese tart... More

If you are full with the magnificence of all the tall and colorful casinos of Macau, it is a necessary getaway for you to travel into the beauty of old Portuguese architecture in the heart of the state. I myself being a seeker of patterns and its history got lost, taking it all in as slowly as I could. The... More

This is primarily why we went to Macau, to walk around Senado Square and take in the old Macau, and of course to eat Portugese tarts.

There are at least five UNESCO world heritage sites at this square. The Portuguese architecture is impressive. There are usually lots of people day and night. The area is clean and safe. There are several shops in the buildings facing the square.

As usual these places of interest should prepare to come early where most tourists are having their breakfast in their hotels. The sq is big and a good place to hang around taking pictures of the old buildings, stone chairs around for you to rest your legs but if youre here in the afternoon, be prepared to walk and stand...

We visited this historic Largo do Senado for a walk...little bit rainy. But despite the rain, we enjoyed looking around this Senado Square. We bought the famous Portuguese egg tart, so delicious.

Other than the famous restaurants and eateries here, this area is way too touristy and crowded for my liking. Besides the historical buildings nothing much is worth mentioning since almost every other shop is selling pretty much the same thing. It is good to check it out for the first time but definitely not a place I would visit again

Senado Square is definitely a great place to visit while in Macau. They have everything: shops, restaurants, the Leal Senado building (go inside and take pictures of the beautiful architecture and Portuguese tiles), the fountain that changes colors, etc. If you go further into the square, there is a sign that will tell you where the other spots of interest...

Nice place to walk around, new shops and transport on one side and traditional more ancient mews on the other. Not to miss Rua da Felicidade.

A beautiful place to hang out while doing a little bit of shopping and watching street performances. Unfortunately taxi is scarce and need to wait for an hour before getting one for hire
