After a day trip to Hongkong, we’re glad that we still have time to roam around the Senado Square. If you are into shopping, you will love to be here. Souveniers (food) for free taste was great! No need to buy a snack, just visit those stores with free taste hahaha.

Smaller than I thought it would be but nice enough. It is completely full with tourists, you can barely walk. The area and the small streets are ok, tons of souvenirs shops and more tourists. Too bad. Would have been nice to see when it was not as crowded.

Great tourist spot in Macau, many cheap things you can buy from this street. Street foods are the best. My first time in Macau, one of the best vacation I had since I am coming from far part of china. I will definitely visit again.

This is the Macau main square. My favourite spot here was the fountain which is pretty much almost everyone’s favourite I guess? Haha
Here you can see how Portugal really influenced Macau , the pavements and the building says a lot.
From an article I read ,they say that it is listed in the World Heritage Site.. so yeah so much history in this place.
But if choosing between history and chemistry , I prefer chemistry and this place doesn’t seem to have that much chemistry with my vibe. I connect more with the St Paul ruins, damn that place made me feel something haha but I did enjoy walking here and taking pictures.

Senado Square is where it all begins when exploring Macau World Heritage. This location has been the urban centre of Macau for centuries and is the location of several impressive World Heritage attractions including Leal Senado, Sam Kai Vui Kun temple and Holy House of Mercy. At the end of Senado Square, you will also find the beautiful St. Dominic's Church.

Lined with beautiful pastel coloured buildings mostly of colonial period architecture, Senado Square is also surfaced with cobblestone pavements known as calçada portuguesa, designed in the same wave pattern found at Rossio Square in Lisbon.

Best to start visits to Senado Square early in the morning. Attractions open at 9am allowing you to explore the area for a couple hours before the crowds descend upon the square by late morning. After that, expect shoulder-to-shoulder pedestrian traffic until evening.

We walked through Senado Square a couple times during the recent Chinese New Year festivities. The area was decorated with red signage, traditional CNY displays and numerous hanging red and gold lantern-type decor. Mixed with the waving black and white cobbled ground, this was a beautiful sight. Well worth seeing during the CNY celebration period.

In the area of Senado Square, there are good number of fellow members of the UNESCO World Heritage collection that makes up the Historic Centre of Macau. Across the street is the Leal Senado building and Sam Kai Vui Kun Temple. On the square itself you will find the Holy House of Mercy, while the Cathedral and Cathedral Square are just behind this last attraction. Walking through Senado square, you enter Domingo Square where you find the famous St. Dominic's Church, off a nearby side street you will find one of my favorites, Lou Kau Mansion. Then just walk up the small side streets past St. Dominic's and you will soon approach the iconic Ruins of St. Paul.

This area of Macau is jammed packed with attractions and members of the World Heritage collection. Most touring of this area starts right at Senado Square, just off Avenida de Almeida Ribeiro. Its one of the most important areas in Macau and the best place to start your touring of the Historic Centre of Macu, especially if you are on limited time in Macau.

Senado Square in Macau is a relatively unremarkable spot that doesn't stand out from other public spaces. While it serves its purpose as a gathering area, there's nothing particularly special or noteworthy about it, making it a rather average attraction.
