This garden is named after the national Portuguese poet Luis de Camoes. He was supposed to live here some time and write on his work Os Lusiadas in the cave. Nowadays there is still his statue. You will find people doing their exercises or just sitting around. Very relaxed place.

It's just an urban park. I liked the calm atmosphere and when we arrived there, everyone was working out. There are some beautiful altars in the back, so if you get the chance go there, it's not so far from the main entrance. The garden is very well preserved anyways.

I grew up learning about the Portuguese and their history. Be in a place that people says that Luis de Camoes wrote part of his most famous book is huge. The place is beautiful and nice to spend some time.

Camoes Garden is most popular park in Macau, is frequented from dawn to dusk by tai chi enthusiasts, palm readers, lovers, students, and men huddled over Chinese chessboards with their... More

Camões is a 16th century Portuguese writer (the Portuguese Shakespeare or Cervantes, one can say). This beautiful garden was made in his honour, as it is supposed that he wrote part of his masterpiece "The Lusiads" here. You can read parts of his works as you walk through the garden and you can spend a very relaxing hour here.

One of reasons we like to visit Camões Garden in Macau is to see the 10 cobblestone engravings which represent cantos of the important historical poet, Luis de Camões. The park is open from 6am to 10pm daily. You can find these surrounding the grounds around the large statue shortly after entering the garden grounds. Here you will see 10... More

The Camoes Garden and Grotto is a very welcome green oasis in this busy city. There are paths for strolling and viewpoints across the river and the city, as well as quiet corners to sit in. the main monuments are to Camoes and to the Korean martyr St. Andrew Kim Taegeon.

This area is actually well-guarded from the noise of the city. There are a lot of plants, people doing tai chi EVERYWHERE, and the statues and grottos. Good for a break.
