Senate Library information
Located in the Leal Senado , Macau's oldest and most lavish library is a beautiful adaptation of the 18th-century library in the Convento de Mafra outside Lisbon, which was built between 1717 and 1730 by German architect Fredrico Ludovice. Though much smaller, with only two rooms, it features a baroque style with scrolling on the ceiling, and dark wood bookcases surmounted by cartouches. The library's 19,000-book collection includes antique publications in Portuguese, French and English.
