Under renovation
Dec 2019
Camoes Grotto & Gardens looked like it is usually a nice leafy area to take a break but renovations were taking place. We were also disappointed that we couldn't see the statue of the first Korean Catholic priest Andrew Kim.

A truly charming area!
Nov 2019
I gained a strong sense of tranquility and calm from the whole of this charming area, but especially from the delightful Garden and Grotto. It was an oasis of relaxation, light years away from the nearby 24 hour permanent madness of Contemporary Macau. This harked to an earlier, less casino -filled and gambling-fixated era in Macanese history.

Hilly wooded city park north of the Ruins of St. Paul's
Apr 2018 • Solo
There are a handful of nice city parks and rural areas around or near the Historic Centre of Macau. One of these is the Cameos Garden and Grotto at Camões Square just north of the Ruins of St. Paul's. This garden is named after the historic Portuguese poet Luis Camões.

Here you will well maintained footpaths winding through a nicely forested and hilly area. There are statue fountain, seasonally planted flowerbeds and a nice Chinese pavilion. Garden highlights include a small grotto, a bust of Luis Camões and series of 10 cobblestone engravings representing cantos of the poet near the front of the garden.

Note: There are three World Heritage attractions next to Camões Garden that you can visit before or after a quick stop in the garden. These include Casa Garden, Protestant Cemetery and St. Antony's Church.

A peaceful garden in the center of the city
Nov 2018 • Couples
Camoes Gardens are well worth visiting with shady walkways, Pavilion, grotto,
sculpture , fountain, lookout tower and lovely plants. Many locals come here to exercise on the machines as you enter the main gate, as well as others performing tai chi. It is one of the oldest parks in the city and open from 6 am to 10 pm. It was named after a famous one-eyed poet, Luis De Camoes (1524-1580)

Seek it out... it’s a beautiful park with lots of places to sit out the heat of a Macao day. A number of different levels, and lots of little nooks and crannies to discover.

A surviving piece of historic Macau preserves that special mix of Portuguese and Chinese cultures.
Feb 2018 • Couples
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 in that grotto. Observe the old men who meet there everyday to play cards and gossip. Be sure to Google Camoens before you go — it’s quite an adventure.

Lovely Park
Jan 2018 • Solo
Not necessarily on the ‘tourist radar,’ this urban park/garden is worth a visit. There are several levels to this park - all accessible via stairs or sloping pathways. There are plenty of places to sit as benches sit the walking pathways. This is a local’s park as people were exercising, meditating, chatting with friends, playing cards or just enjoying some quiet time. The grottos are quite interesting and offer an unusual landscape to explore. Atop several terraces are some excellent vistas overlooking Macau and beyond.

The Absolute Best of Macau
Apr 2017
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 hang out there playing cards, badminton and just doing exercise. It has lots of lovely twists and turns and at dusk, the views of Mainland China can be quite beautiful. There are large marvellous Portuguese mosaics depicting scenes form Camoes' Lusiadas, a grotto with a bust of the famous Portuguese writer and chronographer, and lots of little surprises. Absolutely see this one - if you come down from St Paul's, you might also like to stop at a supermarket half way down Rua de Santo Antonio, which has great cool Portuguese beer for 80 US cents!
