  • Its a nice place to spend some time and admire the Portuguese architecture buildings and proceed to ruins of St. Paul church. Easily approachable by taxi. Many local food joints on the way to ruins of St. Paul church.
  • Awesome place to see in Macau. Plan well ahead as there are large crowds.. If you are vegetarian however, there is very little to eat, so bring food preferably or eat before coming here. Can do most of the square by walk within 1 - 2 hours. Gets hot as there is very little air circulation within the square...but lots of shops with cold air conditioning to cool you down!
  • Awesome place. Visited recently last week. Its beauty was just doubled on Merry Christmas. Must see place in Macau.
  • Very nice place for a walk. The crowd things at night and there is a different feel at night.
  • An awesome place , plan your timing to visit as day and night scenery of Senado square is different.
