This was the primary location we had wanted to visit in Macau. It is a touristy area and crowded in the afternoon. Suggest the morning is a bit better. Close to St.Pauls and the fort. Lots od good food in the area.

We enjoyed seeing the Christmas decorations that were in the process of being erected. The Portuguese colonial architecture of the surrounding buildings is interesting. Many surrounding ships and restaurants including a small street market on one of the streets off of the square. Worth a few minutes of your time.

The thing I like about senado is the paved walk way and no cars can go in and out so you can walk around freely. Left and right are shops seem even selling the same thing and there are also two or three of the same brands on the same stretch of shops You'll never go hungry cause everyone is... More

When you have been in Hong Kong and then travel over to Macau to see the Portugese influence to its a building, it is like stepping into a different country. As the tourist maps are not useful, you have to rely on the little signs pointing to the various attractions in the area. If you miss a sign, good luck!!!... More

We had a few days in Macau and are not keen casino patrons and spent a few hours wandering the streets in and around Largo do Senado. It is a small area and it will take no more than 3 to 4 hours including the ruins and other nearby landmarks. We started from the ruins which meant our walk was... More
