Senado Square, Macau

We were in Macau for 4D3N and 2D2N in Hong Kong

This is at Venetian in Taipa
The second day, when husband were busy conferencing, I braved myself going alone to Senado Square in Peninsular Macau. By taking the hotel shuttle at the west lobby of the hotel, I got down at the macau jetty and then walked to Senado Square which is many blocks away from the jetty. Being a lot different from others, I knew I got second looks from them. There were appetising smell wasping in the air coming from the food stalls and restaurants as I walked along the corridors but of course I couldn't sample the food as they are not halal.

Senado Square is the center of Macau historical and cultural area where old buildings and church ruins are located. I walked around the area till my feet hurt. I didn't even use the map I brought along with me. Now enjoy looking at the pictures below which explain better than words. I can't remember much of the information I read about the buildings because my brain is too old to retain much of them. 

well, I used the road bridge at the background to cross the road from the macau jetty and then walked along the back lane towards the main road to Shenado Square.

A small street opening between two shop blocks 
From the St. Paul Ruins, I walked down the arts street which went around to this park. Near this park is an old church and cemetery.
A kindergarten, I guess..Parents were seen fetching their child 
A peek through the kindergarten's entrance.
