One of reasons we like to visit Camões Garden in Macau is to see the 10 cobblestone engravings which represent cantos of the important historical poet, Luis de Camões. The park is open from 6am to 10pm daily. You can find these surrounding the grounds around the large statue shortly after entering the garden grounds. Here you will see 10... More

Excellent garden among the modern infrastructure... unique part is the statue adorned to a korean martyr... dont know much about history but I found that a bit unusual...If you happen to live in Macau for work or otherwise you should visit this ... also good views of sea....

The Camoes Garden and Grotto is a very welcome green oasis in this busy city. There are paths for strolling and viewpoints across the river and the city, as well as quiet corners to sit in. the main monuments are to Camoes and to the Korean martyr St. Andrew Kim Taegeon.

This area is actually well-guarded from the noise of the city. There are a lot of plants, people doing tai chi EVERYWHERE, and the statues and grottos. Good for a break.

Beautiful garden with large portuguese mosaic murals. The mosaic murals are very cool. It also has a little library. The park is quite large, you can see some people practising tai chi. And of course, the famous portuguese poet, camoes statue. If you are tired of casinos and wanna breath some fresh air, here is a good place to go.

This was a great little place to escape the burning sun and take a peek at life in Macau away from the casinos and shops. Men sitting around playing cards, kids being kids, women doing their exercises. I loved it.

The garden itself is rather average but I liked its waterfall (try to pass in its small grotto between the streams without getting wet :-)) and a beautiful Macau view from above. Also, there is a small but beautiful temple near the rear entrance to the garden. Overall, a very nice visit.

This small urban park is on the northern border of the Historic Center(re) of Macau. It is fairly small and not very impressive as an urban park, but it's clean and well-kept. This is the very seam line of the colonial city, and it's cool to see the contrast between the two Macaus. It won't take much of your time... More

Grotto is a strong word. It is a nice stroll through small gardens on undulating land but this is not really worth making a big trek to find. Some nice views from the top but it is really over the top as a venue. Easy walk from st Paul's. It was a little Romantic for us but I was expecting... More

Our hope to find a lush garden with lovely grottos was totally shattered when we entered this neglected garden. It was dirty, or rather - filthy, with flies and other bugs all over the place. The only nice thing about this place was the gathering of old local men, who played unique card and board games.
