I realized that Saturday strolls with Clare are the best so this morning we decided to tick off five more from our Macau World Heritage bucket list.
Our first stop was the Sir Robert Ho Tung Library. A wealthy Hong Kong businessman named Sir Robert Ho Tung used it as his summer villa but the building was eventually donated to the Macao Government for use as a public library when he passed away.
This is the St. Augustine’s Square which you’ll pass by to the St. Augustine’s Church, Dom Pedro V Theatre, Sir Robert Ho Tung Library and St. Joseph’s Seminary and Church. Clare can be seen checking if the seats are clean and safe for her to sit down.

We passed by St. Augustine’s Church. The facade of the church has a very classic look with columns supporting the vaulted roof.
We loved the Dom Pedro V Theatre. There was a rehearsal happening on the day we visited and Clare said she wanted to play the violin. She was enchanted by the performance at the theater.
We took a quick pic at St. Joseph’s Seminary and church before we walked back to Senado Square for an ice cream treat. I cherish these walks with Clare. There are days when I miss working full time but there are more days when I feel the luckiest mom to be able to hang out with my baby and have spontaneous play dates with her anytime of the day.
We strolled through five structures of the Historic Centre of Macau today. We are looking forward to twelve more to complete the entire Macao World Heritage journey.
