    Location: Macao

    Introduction: Avenida de Sidónio Pais

    The Portuguese Government of Macao inaugurated this park in 1871 to celebrate the successful victory against the Dutch, who attempted to invade and take over Macau in June 1622. Initially, the park was once known as “Field of the Repentant”, before being remembered as the “Field of Victory” and “Victory Square” later on. The octagonal stone monument in the centre of this garden was created by the famous Portuguese sculptor and decorator Rafael Bordalo Pinheiro, which features the Portuguese national emblem, laurel leafs that symbolise victory, and a religious cross engraved at the top. On the pedestal, an inscription was engraved, which features an excerpt from the famous epic poem Os Lusíadas written by the great poet Luís de Camões. Despite the fact that this is a relatively small park, it has a pleasant environment and is very popular to locals.
