Leal Senado (Municipal Council), Macau
(3.9/5 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.

  • 曾经是葡萄牙人在澳门的地方政治心脏。带朋友去议事厅、大三巴经过的,顺路就进去参观下。里面有个公共图书馆,看书的人也很多。主要能免费参观才进来的。 
  • Good: 1. Photo spot - good for solo/group photos 2. History - get to know a little bit of Macau's history here. Bad: None 
  • In fact, more than just passing by to take what you know and know pretty I think taking pictures of them. But if you take a photo, as seen from the eyes put out, I guess. Senado square walk in view of look at this once-unconditionally
