Very hot when we visited there, too crowded, should come after 7pm as it is quieter. The St Pauls Ruin was also around the area. a good place for sightseeing and shopping.

Senado Square is simply a must see when visiting Macau. I would suggest catching a shuttle bus to Grand Lisboa Hotel and Casino, from there its' just a 15 minute walk to the square or a $15 HKD cab ride if you don't like to walk. The senado is square is full of shops but its also super crowded especially... More

My opinion is that the square it self is not a great attraction, doesn't make sense to go out to see it only. Usually there´s some events in this square, but also is possible to find some points os interest around it. 1. the Portuguese pavement, if you don´t know what it is i suggest to search for iton internet.....

It is very crowded here, with so many people you can't really appreciate the black & white paved floors. But it is a beautiful sight when you do see a big area of unoccupied paved floor ! Shops line this square.

The heartbeat of Macau for many centuries has been Senado Square. It remains a tourist hub not just because of the multitude of shops/restaurants but as a starting point for the walk up to Ruins of St Pauls or over the road and the heritage walk that takes in Dom Pedro Teatro/Mandarins House/Lilau Square down to A-Ma Temple. Across the... More

First thing you should do here is find the tourist center and get yourself a map. This square are perfect as a meeting point for those who came in group. You can reach Ruins of St. Paul Church and Macao Museum on foot from here. Along the road, there LOT of local delicacies that make you drool. The souvenir shops... More
