  • Decent statue in the middle of the city. Gives a historic feeling of Macau.
  • There is a monument to Jorge Alvares, the Portugese explorer who is credited as being the first European to reach the shores of Macau, Hong Kong and this area of southern China, located in the small square by the same name off of Avenida da Praia Grande, situated just in front of the New Yaohan Shopping Mall. This is a simple monument that won't likely make much of a priority visit for most but those an interest in maritime and colonial history might want to have a quite stop here if in the area. The Jorge Alvares Monument is around 5-6 minute walk from the Lisboa Hotel and 8-10 minute walk from the Senado Square city center area.
