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.

In addition to lush, forested park area which makes up Camoes Garden and Grotto, we have been pleased with the renovated square in front of the garden entrance as well as the restored temple structures on the western slope of the garden hill, facing the city. The square has more seating area now as well as a nice fountain, with... More

Lovely park - a great place to relax within a lush green surrounding; the park also provides lovely vista of the city. Definitely worth a stop and a better place to visit in comparison to the dismal Casa Garden.

After visiting St. Anthony’s Church and the Old Protestant Cemetery, the adjacent Luis de Camoes Garden & Grotto dedicated to the poet is a nice place to relax for a moment. Lot of old people doing their exercises at the fitness apparatus! See for an extended review the former review.

Jardim Luis De Camões (Camões Garden) is dedicated to the memory of Luís de Camões, whom many regard as Portugal’s greatest poet. In fact, there are those who put him right up there with legendary poets such as Virgil and Dante. While that may be up for debate, what is very clear is that Camões, who was born in the... More

We really enjoyed our stop at the Camoes Garden and Grotto this past week. The Grotto area was decent and there were some interestingly patterned tiles leading into the heart of the garden area. However, what we really liked was the thick, flush green, rainforest like environment within the park. During the cooler months, this made a great break from... More

There are paintings in the Macau museum of art of Camoes grotto. It's nice to go and see it for real. The park around it is lovely.

Macau is a very crowded place and this beautiful garden will take you out of that as soon as you enter. There is a bit of climbing up and down the paths throughout the gardens, but the views are beautiful and the garden rather tranquil. Take a break and enjoy the peace and quiet.
