15. Camoes Garden
Camoes Garden and Grotto, is Macau’s largest park & one of the oldest parks. After the British moved out in 1835, it was bought over by a Portuguese merchant, who later built his resident house there.

The merchant adored raising doves and his hundreds of doves always hovered near the garden, forming a marvelous scene famous near and far.

After the death of the merchant, the garden was donated to the government and later opened to public as a memorial garden dedicated to Louis de Camoes, a famous Portuguese poet who lived four hundred years ago. Hence the name Luis de Camoes Garden.

It is a popular spot for locals to do their morning exercises, to play chess, to walk their caged birds or to meet with friends.
