Not a huge space but there are some interesting photo spots. I'm guessing this place might have suffered some neglect during the pandemic years as it certainly didn't look as spruced up as the photos posted pre-covid. So not a must-visit unless you are in the area.

Nice shot on the Mandarin's House, World Heritage, Macau.The Mandarin’s House, located by the side of Lilau Square (Largo do Lilau), was the residence of Zheng Guanying (1842-1921), a great man of letters, reformist, and patriotic merchant in modern China.

Historical Chinese house, free entrance, worth a visit, good opportunity for nice photos. Not a top tourist attraction in Macau, but worth a visit if you are in this part of the city.
Try nice coffee in the neighbouring kiosk under beautiful big trees or have a meal in Pizzeria Toscana nearby.

Must-see sightseeing during a visit to Macau.
A delightful trip to scape the hustle. Constructed about 150 years ago, It has been restored and reopened to the public in 2010.

Firstly it is free admission, so that is already a thumbs up! hehe..
You can dont bother about the write ups and the various exhibitions pieces of god knows what.
Just head around the place, and you will find many nice interior places to snap those nostalgic photos you have been craving for in Macau.
Make your photos black-white to get a more fuller effect!!

Overall, if you are a photo-junkie, this is a place for you!

The Mandarin House is a real gem. Hidden just behind Lilau Square and surrounded by modern residential buildings, it catapults the visitor 100 years back into a glorious past. The house has been gently renovated so that the place still looks authentic. Good written explanations especially at the beginning of the tour about the history of the family, the house and Macau from that time.

Apart from us there were very few visitors (in contrast to the famous St. Paul's ruins). We were also positively surprised that the entrance is free of charge.

For us the Mandarin House was the highlight among the historical sights in Macau and is a must do on the list for every Macau visitor interested in culture.

We visited Mandarin House twice. First in late afternoon and then again in morning time (dressed in Qi Pao to take photos:) ). During our time in Macau we experiences typhoon so rain was on and off. This old Chinese residence was a relief from chaos in downtown Senado Square. It was nearly empty (but we met 2 big groups of students in our 2nd visit). Many rooms to explore historic lives in their time. Ancient Chinese architecture and small exhibitions. No entrance fee. A must see in Macau.

Very interesting place. A good example of the old traditional Chinese houses. Lots of history related to this place. Under renovations, some areas need major work. Still, the exhibitions were very interesting and well organized - whoever is doing it is well prepared and knowledgeable. The “museum shop” has some very good books and magazines on Macau. Definitely a place to visit in Macau.
