  • Heard that the most famous Portuguese poet Luis de Camoes lived there so that's why the garden is named by him. Peaceful and calm place in Macau.
  • The beautiful natural park
  • Calming park with beautiful scenic views. I went here in January 2015 and it was a very relaxing place to be. the park is well maintained and has some excellent areas from which to see Macau. There are play areas for children and a cemetery nearby of foreigners from the mid 1800s. I could not imagine there would be such a peaceful place in the middle of a thriving city.
  • Nice place to relax and stay away from the craziness of Macau.
  • Cozy and laid back place!
