Nice place to take a few photos, stroll around, eat some egg tarts. The tourism office is just past the fountain on your left (yellow building) to pick up some free maps.

Senate Square is a place for shoppers. Some shops were on sale when we were there. We did not experience being hungry since it kept us busy choosing branded items on SALE. Not far fom our hotel, it took us a twenty minute walk to reach the place and even gave us an exercise.
It's a uphill where different stalls selling the local souvenirs and foods that people will be buying back home. The great thing is that you can try all the way up on different snacks like bbq pork or beef, almond biscuits, egg rolls and many more.
Easy to find by following the street signs. Lots of restaurants and good inexpensive shopping. It reminds one very much of old town Lisbon.
