Lou Kau Mansion is an unique attraction close to Senado Square and that provides a fine example of preserved Chinese architecture in the UNESCO-recognized Historic City Centre. The property’s decorative finishings above hall entrance doors and within the courtyards, the wood carving canopies and screens found within the main halls as well as the furnishing of the mansion, all reflect an unique combination of Chinese and Western design elements.
Built in 1889, it belonged to Macau-Chinese merchant Lou Kau, hence the venue’s name. This house-museum has been refurbished as time goes by so people can visit and appreciate all its details. There are explanatory flyers inside so people can learn more information.
Lou Kau Mansion is located close to Capitol shopping mall, but also the Portuguese Bookshop (Livraria Portuguesa), São Paulo Bookshop and other cool places in town. There are several places around to grab a bite, including Cathedral Café, Ou Mun restaurant, among others.
