A beautiful and authentic house in the middle of the old city. Went through all rooms on the ground floor and got the chance to visit the upper floor. Very well preserved and worth checking out if you’re visiting

This was lovely to see, very authentic. It was a bit hard to find, tucked away in a side street, but worth the effort. It's free to get in and we looked around for an hour.

Nearly walked right by as the outside is nondescript. The interior, however is amazing. A cross between Chinese and western architecture. Spend some time looking at the details. And as everyone points out, entry is free of charge.

Absolutely charming place, pretty quiet. An ideal escape from the crowds of the old Macao. On the way to the place you wander through the old streets with beautiful colonial style buildings. Another big plus-entrance is free

If you want visiting place which is not Portuguese Style architecture, try Mandarin House. You can walks from Senado Square around 800 meters, trough some small alley that full of daily life Macau residents, i think you will find something different compared another tourist destination....More
