The building was built before 1894 and was originally the residence of Dona Carolina Cunha. The mansion was then bought by a Hong Kong businessman named Sir Robert Ho Tung in 1918 as a retreat and he lived there between 1941 and 1945, during World War II. When he died in 1956 he willed the property to the government, with the intention that it become a library. The library officially opened in 1958 to the general public, and in 2005 a new building was constructed making it the biggest public library in Macau. The building is an example of Macanese-style architecture and three floors tall. The interior has Chinese influences in its decorations, while the garden has a Western landscape with rare botanical plants.
