European garden at Camoes Square
Apr 2018 • Solo
Casa Garden is found on the grounds of a property built in 1770 for a wealthy Portuguese merchant Manuel Pereira. It is one of three World Heritage attractions you can visit at Camoes Square north of the Ruins of St. Paul's.

This is a European style garden with man-made pool and a couple of interesting monuments. The house, which unfortunately is not usually open to the public is also attractive. There are exhibitions held here from time to time so if lucky, you may be able to take a peak of he interior of the Casa Garden house.

If short on time, this is one of the more isolate World Heritage attractions o you might want to take a pass on Casa Garden. However, if you are aiming for a comprehensive visit of Macao World Heritage, you can conveniently visit the gardens before or after the Protestant Cemetery and St. Anthony's Church while in the area of Camoes Square.

Pleasant enough
Dec 2017 • Couples
The building in this garden was originally the home of a merchant. There was an art exhibition there when we passed through. This was not of much interest to us, so we just walked through the garden. It is adjacent to the Camoes Garden and Protestant Cemetery if you are doing a walking tour of historic Macau.

Historic building and garden if sightseeing at the Camoes Garden area of Macau
Dec 2015 • Couples
Casa Garden is one of three World Heritage attractions situated at Camoes Square (Praca Luis de Camoes) north of the famous Ruins of St. Paul.

The house at Casa Garden is one of the oldest surviving building in Macau, originally constructed for a wealthy merchant, it was also the former British East India Company office during its past. Until recently, visitors couldn't visit the main building but now there are gallery exhibitions held allowing access at times.

Visitors can enter the front gate and walk around the small garden area set before the historic landmark, daily 9.30-6pm. The garden is attractive but not landscaped or maintained as well as the larger Camoes Garden next door. There are Christmas poinsettias lining the staircase to the front of the Casa Garden House presently which are nice.

You will also find a small fish pond, surrounded by plants and vegetation, a dated statue of Bernardino Senna Fernandes as well as a newer, small and colourful Chinese deity statue.

If sightseeing in the area, you can conveniently stop by to see the gardens in just a few minutes. If there is an exhibition taking place, you might want to take opportunity to enter and explore the historic Casa Garden House as well.

Nice quiet garden hidden from the guided tour group
Oct 2015 • Family
We visited Casa Garden as it held the exhibition for the 2015 World Photo Contest organised by the World Press Photo. It was a great exhibition with many stunning photos around the world.

As for the Garden, it was nice on its own, with the a mixed of western building behind a Chinese Hangzhou style pond.

Casa Garden - Nice garden but low impact attraction on the Macau World Heritage Trail
Sep 2013 • Couples
Casa Garden is an interesting inclusion in the World Heritage Collection that is quite difficult to visit as it is closed on Saturdays, Sundays and Public holidays. It is located on Camoes Square where there is a l small cluster of World Heritage Attractions, including Old Protestant Cemetery and across from St. Anthony's Church. You can also visit the larger Camoes Garden and Grotto, which is just next to Casa Garden and is open to the public year round.

Historically, the compound houses a building, which was constructed in 1770 and was originally the property of a wealthy Portuguese Merchant named Manuel Pereira. It was later used by the British East India Company as well. At present it is used by the Oriental Foundation and as a result the building itself is not open for visitation. However, you can wander around the garden directly in front of the building.

The Casa Garden is a small area in front of the Oriental Foundation building featuring a sizeable fish pond, a statue and decently manicured garden area. and takes no more than 5-10 minutes to visit. It is a nice garden but might fail to leave a memorable impression compared to other more impressive World Heritage attractions in the historic city centre area.

Overall, we usually don't recommend the World Heritage attractions in this area, including Casa Garden to those visiting Macau as a daytrip as there are more interesting attractions in which to invest your limited time. However, if you are staying for 2-3+ nights, and intend to see all of the Macau World Heritage collection, it is worth making a pass by Camoes Square to see those found here, including Casa Garden

Hint: For those interested in seeing some of Macau's better gardens, we suggest Lou Lim Iok Garden just past Tap Seac Square as the best garden visit in Macau. Also, Camoes Garden, just next to Casa Garden is a decent garden/park area to see.
