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.

During summer, I have visited the Praça de Luís de Camões. That is a popular tourist attraction, especially Portuguese because of Camões is an important historical person in Portuguese history. There have strong Portuguese culture feeling. Whether it is building, floor or decoration, all are European style. Fundação Oriente also near Praça de Luís de Camões. There has a garden... More

This garden is popular among the locals, but I don’t think it is for tourists. There is nothing in this garden other than to walk or jog. The local elder people spend time here playing cards and gambling. The grotto which is a formation of 3 rocks is the only thing to see here. I would recommend this for tourists... More

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.

Dedicated to the famous Portuguese poet Luis de Camoes who lived in Macau for a brief while and composed his epic poem "Os Lusíadas" here, the park is the largest in Macau and covers around 20,000 square meters. The park is a short walk from the Ruin's and is easily reached by public transport. Upon entering the park, the visitor... More

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.

Ruínas da Antiga Catedral de São Paulo( 大三巴 ) is overcrowded. But just walk 5 minutes away to the Camoes Garden. The park is open from 6am to 10pm daily. 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
