After a walking tour through all of old Macau, we undertook the final leg and were so happy we did. Camoes Garden is absolutely beautiful, and being off the beaten track (beyond the ruins of St Paul's) it is largely underpopulated by tourists. The locals...More

A nice garden popular among local. There is not much to see here, but on the back of the garden there are many interesting little Buddhist temples.

Small gardens with mosaics sonnets engraved in stone and grotto with his bust. There are several gym machines for people to use. It seems a popular place for elderly and moms with children. It's close to the Santo Antonio Church.
