5 unwinding Parks and gardens to visit in MACAU

unwinding isn’t really the first word that concerns mind when you look at the typical pictures of Macau. At night, the lights and colors of its busy casinos and hotels form a kaleidoscopic, practically psychedelic cityscape that induces an unexpected adrenaline rush. even its historical core — Senado Square and the Ruins of St. Paul — can be quite wearing as droves of tourists scramble around its blocks. If the doctor orders immediate detoxifying, Macau probably won’t be in his prescription.

Amidst Macau’s excitant chaos, however, are parks and gardens that are often overlooked. The city map is shaded with numerous of these pockets of peace, but numerous just walk past them. here are five of the sedative nooks and crannies of Macau that can give you a much-needed dose of peace and quiet.

Fortaleza do Monte now houses the Macau Museum, but its “rooftop” park is worthy of a separate nod. constructed from 1671-1626 under the orders of the Jesuits, it was the most essential defense structure in Macau. much of the structure was preserved including the cannons that line the parapets of the fortress. Perched atop mount Hill, the fortress overlooks the city in all directions and offers a splendid 360-degree view of the peninsula. Not to be missed if you’re planning on paying the museum a visit.

Camoes garden and Grotto

The Camoes garden is Macau’s oldest park. It is also the largest, spanning an area of 20,000 square meters.

Built as the residence of a Portuguese merchant, it was turned over to the government after his death. The park was named after Luis de Camoes, a Portuguese poet who was exiled to Macau for two years. This was where he would come and compose his poetry, including the epic Os Lusiadas (Soul of Portugal). Macau considers him a significant historical and literary figure that June 10, the day he passed away, was declared Portugal Day. In one corner of the park is a bronze bust of Camoes, installed in 1886.

Casa Garden

Just beside the Camoes Grotto is the Casa Garden, also part of the historical Core of Macau. The house at the center of the parkette was built in 1770 as the residence of Portuguese merchant Manuel Pereira. He then rented it out to the British east India Company, which designated the place to house their Chairman. Today it is now the Macau branch of the Oriental foundation and has been transformed into an art gallery. (There was an exhibit showcasing the various Asian masks when we visited. totally free entrance, too.)

Jardim de Lou Lim Ioc

Lotus-covered ponds reflect the beautiful conventional and Victorian architecture of the surrounding structures that dot the Lou Lim Ioc Garden. A winding concrete walkway snakes over one of them, a good pondering spot for visitors. numerous locals spend their mornings and late afternoons at the garden, which seems to be immune to the noise that rushes around outside. It was mid-February when I went to and the cold weather had withered the lotus flowers, but their bowing remains fostered a peaceful and very romantic atmosphere.
