Senado Square is small piece of Europe at the heart of Macau. I previously wrote about Saint Dominic’s Church and the Ruins of St. Paul’s Cathedral in Macau, but the area that ties these attractions together is the Senado Square, where you can walk along the alleys of what’s left of the former Portuguese colonizing culture. Senate Square, now a UNESCO heritage site, dates back to Ming dynasty. Most of what you’ll see looks like Europe, although the massive Chinese tourists crowds taking a break from spending billions at the nearby casinos really takes away from the European appeal.

 

So, on to the show.

If you’re a tourist, rather than a gambler, this will probably be the best place for you to start your visit from.

Been to small Macau four times with no gambling, and found something new to do every time. Be sure to check out my Macau itinerary and posts.
