Macau is a small administrative region of the People's Republic of China (PRC), the other is Hong Kong. It consists of two other islands known as Taipa and Coloane. Popular for its legal gambling and high end shops, Macau is a popular destination for those looking to spend money.
However, there is a serene and historic side to be explored here. One of these sites is known as Senado Square.
The paved square, in the centre of the former Portuguese colony of Macau, China, is enclosed by the Leal Senado building, the General Post Office and St. Dominic's Church.
One can easily find themselves taking in the Portuguese Architecture, while enjoying a leisurely walk through the vendor filled side-streets or while indulging in a famous Portuguese egg tart as you make your way towards the Ruins of St. Paul.

Discover hidden gems like a wishing fountain...
Or have a coffee break at one of the quaint local coffee shops (or Starbucks), but whatever you do, whether you're visiting Macau for a day or a few hours, Senado Square is not a place to be passed up.
