Leal Senado (Municipal Council), Macau
(3.8/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
Go back in time and visit Leal Senado (Municipal Council), a World Heritage Site that once served as the seat of the Portuguese government during the colonial era. The "loyal senate" here is noted as having refused to accept Spanish authority during the Spanish occupation of Portugal. Constructed in 1784, the building features a smooth, structured Plain Portuguese style. Highlights of the decorated interior include elaborate carvings on the wall of the library, which houses more than 50,000 books, and a gallery with rotating art exhibits. Stroll through the blue-tiled courtyard, tip your hat to the bust of the famous Portuguese poet Luis de Camoes, and relax in the small garden in the back.

  • 主建築物本身相當具有葡式風格,但可能因應聖誕節的到來,做了許多格格不入的裝飾,相當破壞氣氛!若有機會在平日前往或許會有不同的感覺。 
  • It was only open to visit the courtyard of this former Portuguese building as they were installing Christmas ornaments. It was a little disappointing to see the tiles pretty damaged and neglected.
