St. Augustine’s Square is located in São Lourenço neighborhood. Home to historical buildings such as Sir Robert Ho Tung Library, Dom Pedro V Theatre, and St. Augustine’s Church, this is a peaceful area with narrow streets leading to Nam Van Lakes on one side, Lilau Square and Barra on the other, and Senado area if one goes right. Cobblestone pavement unifies the area and reflects a traditionally Portuguese streetscape with buildings made in colonial-style architecture.
St. Augustine’s Square is also located close to St. Lawrence’s Church and some shops like local traditional bakeries, Chinese restaurants, pet shops and more. This is an ideal place to head to when looking for a peaceful and quiet venue while seating at one of the public green benches over some cold drinks. It’s also nice to take a tour of all the Macau history encased in the area.
Made for public use, it’s accessible through sloped streets from both the central area and the inner harbor. This neighborhood is also known for housing several Filipino restaurants. Within a five-minute walk, one will reach St. Lawrence Wet Market, several bus stops and even Rua da Felicidade.
