Why Tashi Square is special ?

The Tashi Square is located in St. Lazarus Parish, in between Avenida do Conselheiro Ferreira de Almeida and Avenida de Sidonio Pais. It borders Rua Filipe O'Costa to the south, Rua de Sacadura Cabral to the north and lies in between St. Anthony’s Parish and Cathedral Parish. The major sites within the Historical Centre of Macao are spread across the St. Anthony’s Parish lying northwest of the Square, which is often packed by tourists during festivals and holidays. The Praia Grande district, Rua do Campo and its periphery within the Cathedral Parish in the south are the important business and administration centre of Macao frequented by streams of people. The Avenida do Conselheiro Ferreira de Almeida, a hectic traffic artery that meets Rua do Campo on one end, runs throughout the three parishes. The surrounding area of Tap Seac Square is undoubtedly the traffic hub of downtown Macao.

What to explore at Tashi Square?

Tashi Square is a beautiful square surrounded by important historic buildings from the 1920s (Cultural Affairs Bureau, Tap Seac Health Centre, Central Library, Library for Macau’s Historical Archives, Tap Seac Gallery) was designed by Macanese architect Carlos Marreiros. Marreiros also created the Tap Seac Health Centre, a contemporary interpretation of Macau’s neoclassical buildings.

Apart from the memorable red and yellow colonial buildings flanking Tap Seac (or Tashi) Square, this popular space also shines due to the many social activities that take place on its Portuguese black-and-white tiles. Tap Seac hosts most of the neighbourhood's fairs and community events, and Chinese New Year celebrations are especially fun to catch if you visit during the festive season.

This is a square that you might visit on your way from the ferries to the Historic Center(re) of Macau. As such, it might be your first proper look at Macau's colonial architecture—and what a treat! The square is very well-maintained and when I was there all of the buildings looked as if they were freshly painted. It's both a great place to have a seat and relax on your walk around Macau, and a great place (once of the best in town) to admire the colonial architecture.

We recently visited and spent a couple hours at Tap Seac Square, also known as Tashi Square, for the Chinese New Year festivities that were taking place at this location. What we loved about our visit to Tap Seac Square was the eye dotting ceremony, dragon and lion dance performances that took place as part of the CNY holiday celebration. This was great fun and well worth trying to see if you are in Macau during the Chinese New Year festivities. The CNY booths were fun to browse, offering lots of seasonal and holiday souvenirs and good food. We had some particularly good boxed take-away from the Indian Garden booth, their restaurant actually being in Taipa. We felt the CNY booths here were much better than those we also found at Fisherman's Wharf and just as good as the booths at Barra Square near A-Ma Temple. Within the Tap Seac Square, you can also find the decent Tap Seac Gallery. Around the corner, a few minutes walk up Estrada do Cemiterio, you can find the interesting St. Michael Chapel and Cemetery. Also, if you walk up Conselheiro Ferreira de Almeidia, just a few minutes you will find the very impressive Lou Lam Ieoc Gardens and the Macau Tea Culture House. Interestingly, this area with its many beautifully painted buildings is not part of the UNESCO World Heritage collection for the Historic Centre of Macau, which somewhat keeps it off the beaten tourist path. We really enjoy this area of Macau, finding it just as interesting and much less crowded.

The place is used to organised big events for the city but there was no event took place when we came. However we had a good time relaxing in the restaurant nearby with noodles and a wide view to the square and the city.
