Tourist spot
May 2021 • Friends
Great tourist spot in Macau, many cheap things you can buy from this street. Street foods are the best. My first time in Macau, one of the best vacation I had since I am coming from far part of china. I will definitely visit again.

Very nice place
Jan 2021 • Couples
In the center of Macau that has a lot of mixed culture in it. This place is not just simply chinese like olace it is a mixture of portuguese architecture and chinese architecture. Place is very nice for photo taking especially if there are events going on. This should be the 1st stop of the tourists when they go to Macau

Largo do Senado represents the vibrant heart of the Historic Centre of Macau.
Dec 2019
My wife and I were so pleased we decided to include a two night stay in Macau as part of our 18 day Asian adventure to celebrate our 40 anniversary in December 2019 and January 2020. Macau is a delightful fusion of Chinese and Portuguese influences and it is essential in our view to include a visit to its Historic Centre.

We had just viewed in awe the famed Ruins of St Paul’s and our next port of call was to experience Largo do Senado, more commonly known as Senado Square. From the Ruins of St Paul’s we embarked on a most interesting walk. During the journey we travelled along one narrow street crowded with tourists and locals with an exciting vibe of food shops and small bakeries selling many Macau culinary delights including the famous Portuguese egg tarts. Acting on impulse we decided to watch our valuables extra carefully, given the closeness of all the tourists to us as we walked the crowded streets. Just before arriving at the Square we walked along Largo de São Domingos with its many trendy clothing shops.

What a great sight greeted us when we reached the Square. It is a huge Square covering an area of 3,700 square metres. It is very beautiful and the square is surrounded by magnificent pastel coloured neo-classical buildings, It is a Square for the people with hundreds of locals and tourists simply enjoying the atmosphere and the exciting buzz. There are many shops and cafes to entice. My wife was pleased that there was a Pandora jewellery shop in the Square. She purchased a nice memento to commemorate our anniversary.

Our visit here took place on 30 December which was five days after Christmas. As such, the Square had retained its many, magnificent Christmas decorations and displays which really added to the colour and vibrancy of the place. The most impressive Christmas display was the one magnificently decorating the Square’s water fountain.

Across the road from the Square is the magnificent Leal Senado building, originally built in 1784, and Macau’s original municipal chamber, a function it maintains to the present. We took time out to go inside this building and we really enjoyed the experience, particularly viewing the Council Chambers and meeting room upstairs. Opposite the Leal Senado building and beside the Square to the right is the very imposing three story General Post Office Building built in 1929. Yet another fabulous building right in the Square is the Holy House of Mercy established by the first Bishop of Macau in 1569. These and many more fine historic buildings are in this vicinity to view and admire forming an impressive treasure trove for the most ardent of history buffs.

We really enjoyed this short glimpse of this magnificent Square. Our visit really wasn’t long enough as we could have easily spent more hours here soaking up the history and the atmosphere. Nevertheless, in the time we were here it became very obvious to us from the many people present that the Largo do Senado definitely represents the vibrant heart of the Historic Centre of Macau.

Free taste!
Jul 2019
After a day trip to Hongkong, we’re glad that we still have time to roam around the Senado Square. If you are into shopping, you will love to be here. Souveniers (food) for free taste was great! No need to buy a snack, just visit those stores with free taste hahaha.

It was a bit crowded when we were here but the experience is unforgettable since you are mingling with fellow tourists. Lots of shops and restaurants around. Ruins of St. Paul is just a stone's throw away.
