Montanha Russa Park

Although situated in built-up, bustling suburbs, this is a quiet retreat in the north of Macao, next to the New Protestant Cemetery. The name 'russa' comes from the Chinese word for a snail, which describes the small spiral path that winds up to the top of the hill. The garden has secluded benches much favoured by lovers, and an impressive concentration of many different tropical and European trees, all carefully labelled in Latin and Chinese. There is an excellent indoor/outdoor Portuguese restaurant in a garden near the entrance.
