A sense of fusion of East and West where the streets are covered with portuguese tiles with some of the chinese buildings. Try to visit when the sun is set, the streets are light up with yellow lights extra romantic.

It was a nice building with a lovely courtyard with azulejos! (Portuguese coloured tiles). They also have different exhibitions which are worth to enjoy to catch a glimpse of Macau history or culture. It is free to visit

It was a real treat for the senses to be here recently. The streets were swimming with joyful revellers last weekend and the atmosphere was electric.There were very distinctive photo opportunities in the softly lit night quarters and it seemed like a hazy, warm dream.

Leal Senado was in the town center and in Chinese it was called 'The Lovers' Lane'. Good spot for photos.
