Leal Senado (Municipal Council), Macau

(3.9/5 based on 180+ 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.

  • Though guarded by a municipal policeman, walk through the door of the municipal Council to discover a charming garden and beautiful history. It is very small, but there is a photo exhibition of Macau and its past... without a single date on the pictures!

  • The Leal Senado is a beautiful building, which is part of the whole of the Largo do Senado and Portuguese architecture.
