Leal Senado (Municipal Council), Macau

(3.8/5 based on 170+ 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.

  • Interesting old building with Portuguese tiles. Nice garden space was decorated for Chinese New Year and I saw others using the toilet facilities which I think we're free. 
  • Remnants of colonial Portugal Portugal building lot area is. It is recommended because many there is a casino if it says Macau S.A.R., heritage doesn't advertise. In fact many Macau S.A.R. world heritage.

  • You could look in the normal state, celebrating a civil administration General Administration of Senado square to still have Christmas decorations. But it is, change is fun in a story I. To Senado square was crowded with people, but the General Administration of civil affairs across the quiet feels. But the heavy atmosphere like which are associated with the name, rather bright and was building a nice tile.
