    CM001-Avenida de Almeida Ribeiro / Senado Square / St. Dominic’s Square

    Location: Macao

    Category: Ensembles

    The name of the Senado Square came from the old City’s Council, the “Leal Senado” Building. This area has been Macao’s city centre for centuries, and is still the most popular venue for public events and celebrations today. The Square is surrounded by pastel coloured neo-classical buildings, forming a consistent and harmonious Mediterranean atmosphere. Alongside the Square with predominant western architecture, is the old Chinese Bazaar. The intermingling of these districts and the combination of different architectural styles side-by-side are good reflections of Macao’s multicultural identity.

    Architectural characteristics:

    Most of the buildings around Largo do Leal Senado are neoclassical in style and some are Classified Monuments or Classified Buildings of Architectural Interest including the Civic and Municipal Affairs Bureau Building, the Post Office Building and the Santa Casa da Misericórdia.
