“Pretty but too crowded.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

The buildings surrounding Senado Square are lovely and the square itself is also, but it is heaving with tourists milling about aimlessly and restaurant employees holding up advertising signs. Negotiating your way through isn't straightforward and it's hard to really see anything for the throng.

The Senado Square is the rendezvous place for local people and tourists. Many beautiful building surrounding the Square. You can shop there or sit and talk with friends at Mc Cafe or Starbucks.

“Great place to start in the historic center”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

It's a lot smaller than it seems in the brochures, but apart from its scaled down reality it does draw the crowds and there is a great vibe to the place. It's also a convenient starting point for any walk thru the historic center. Nice photo op!

“Historic Place for Macau - Must go.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Did a side trip before checking in the hotel casinos, you only need a couple of hours here, walk around, check out the shops/market and portuguese /chinese restaurants.

“Nice historic center”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

The way down from the Saint Paul ruins is a nice pedestrian street that end at the Senado square. Behind the buildings around the square is the market. The facades are nice and the atmosphere is quite relaxed and different then in the casinos area
