Surrounded by original old buildings, this botanical garden with its labeled trees and shrubs is a restful respite from the bustle of the newer parts of Macau. The grotto is a fine tribute to Portugual’s greatest poet. Camoens actually composed much of his epic poem...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.
