A visit to Lilau Square will show you one of the first Portuguese residential areas. You’ll find a typical Mediterranean influence and some Art Deco influences. However, traditional Chinese architecture residences surrounds it, illustrating Macao’s multicultural background.
The ground water of Lilau used to be the main source of natural spring water in Macao. The Portuguese popular phrase: “One who drinks from Lilau never forgets Macao” expresses the locals’ nostalgic attachment to Lilau Square.
