Travessa da Paixão

Travessa da Paixão

This small little lane looks no different from many other lanes found in Macao but its specialty lies in its name, Travessa da Paixão. The Portuguese word “Paixão” means passion and love. Originally it expresses catholic passion to the God but due to the mistranslation, Travessa da Paixão becomes Love Lane. Nowadays, the lane becomes an ideal place for dating, wedding photo shooting, as well as scene of some TV series and films. The Cinematheque ・Passion is a three-storey building equipped with ticket office, screening room, control room and film information room. It holds different thematic film or "Director-in-Focus" programmes, and plays two to three films which are premiered in Macao from different parts of the world every month.
