Loyal Senate Building 3.5 rating


Built to house Macau's municipal government the Leal Senado has a neoclassical design and much of the original layout and structure has been retained through the years. The first floor has a ceremonial meeting room that adjoins an elaborate library. The name 'Loyal Senate' is derived from the name bestowed upon Macau 'City of Our Name of God Macau There is None More Loyal' by King Dom Joao IV in 1654 because the colony's senate refused to recognise Spain's occupation of Portugal in the early 1600s.
