It was a nice building with a lovely courtyard with azulejos! (Portuguese coloured tiles). They also have different exhibitions which are worth to enjoy to catch a glimpse of Macau history or culture. It is free to visit

Visited this place on a Sunday. Only the garden was open. The library and roof terrace were close to public.

This was built way back in the latter part of the eighteenth century circa 1784. It was in fact the first Municipal chamber for Macau. It is designed in neo classical style. everything about this building is beautiful. They don't make building like this anymore....More
