Casa Garden


This beautiful colonial villa and park were built in 1770 as a merchant's residence. It later became the headquarters of the British East India Company when it was based in Macau in the early 19th century. The property has a small gallery that puts on excellent exhibitions with a cross-cultural (Portuguese and Macanese/Chinese) aspect. Visitors can wander the slightly forlorn-looking gardens.
