One of the largest gardens in Macau, the land was originally owned by the British East India Company and was bought over by a Portuguese merchant who then willed it to the Macau government to be turned into a public garden when he died. The garden was dedicated to the Portuguese laureate Luis de Camoes. The gardens are popular with tai chi and aerobics groups and also people who bring their birds in cages to be shown off. The main attraction of the park is the Camoes Grotto, where Camoes once lived with his Chinese bride in the late 16th century. Inside is a bronze bust of the one-eyed poet.
