Lesser known sightseeing near the World Heritage area
Feb 2019 • Couples
One of the lesser known attractions in Macau that I like to pass by and have a look at from time to time is the Chinese Pavilion Library in front of the San Francisco Garden, very near to Grand Lisboa Hotel.

This is an octagonal-shaped pavilion that serves as a public library for local residents. Built in the 1920's, it is charming little place to see. You can enter and take a quick look around during opening hours. Nobody minds. Otherwise, simply enjoy from the outside when passing by.

In the end, the Chinese pavilion, because it is not a World Heritage attraction, receives very little tourism promotion and almost no visitors yet it is located just 5 minutes walk from the Macau World Heritage area and can be conveniently seen for anyone with interest in interesting architectural buildings

Delightful Chinese style pavilion at Jardim de S. Francisco
Apr 2018 • Solo
Bajiaoting Library (Chinese Pavilion Library) is a charming building located next to the car park and lower level of Jardim de S. Francisco (San Fransisco Garden).

This quaint little building is eight-sided and resembles a two-story Chinese style pavilion. It is delicate its construction and design and quite enjoyable to view when passing by the garden.

Interesting, the building serves as a public library and is free to access for those who want to have a quick look around.

Macau's Wallace Fountain is next to the Chinese Pavilion Library
Nov 2016 • Solo
For those familiar with the Wallace Fountains of Paris, you can find one in Macau next to the Chinese Pavilion Library at Jardim de San Francisco.

This Wallace fountain resembles those you may have seen in Paris or elsewhere. It is green colour and features four goddesses holding a miniature doom from which a steady flow of safe drinking water flows.

The Wallace Fountain in Macau was provided by the Macau Water Supply Co. at this location in 2004. The water tastes fine and is useful for filling up your water bottles on hot days.

In addition to seeing the the interesting Chinese Pavilion Library and the Wallace Fountain, it is well worth your time to walk into the San Francisco garden as well. Some nice structures to see in the area, plenty of park benches as well as free wifi which you can access here.

Lovely bit of Chinese architecture
Apr 2014 • Couples
One of the interesting Chinese buildings to see in the Historic City Centre is the Chinese Pavilion Library, which is situated behind the Grand Lisboa Hotel, right in front of the nice San Francisco Garden. According to the Macau Government Tourism Office (MGTO), this was the first library opened in Macau and it is an interesting building to see.

The Chinese Pavilion Library is a small, eight-sided, two story room. It very much resembles a classic Chinese style pavilion that you will have seen elsewhere in gardens throughout the mainland or in various Chinese gardens around the world.

While not included in the UNESCO World Heritage list of attractions that make up the Historic Centre of Macau, we still find this a very interesting building to find when spending time in this area of the city.

The Chinese Pavilion Library is included in the 'Western and Oriental Architecture: A Symphony of Design' walking tour that includes a handful of architecturally interesting buildings in the area. You can find this tour on the MGTO website.

Chinese Pavilion Library - very interesting, tiny, library - "Off the beaten trail"
Jan 2012 • Couples
We stopped by the Chinese Pavilion Library and S. Francisco Garden on a couple of occasions during our recent trip to Macau. Unfortunately, we found the library closed due to it being the Chinese New Year holiday. This is a beautiful pavilion style building that is quite tiny but somehow houses a small library within its walls. We were quite disappointed to not have been able to have seen the inside but we quite enjoyed viewing the outside of this building.

The Chinese Pavilion Library is not a member of the UNESCO collection of World Heritage collection representing the Historic Center of Macau. Thus, like many good attractions to the east of the city centre, it is off the main tourist trail and receives very few visitors it seems. This is similar to the nice S. Francisco Garden next door, both being worthy for a visit if you are in this area of the city, in our view.
