Carmel Garden is a small Taipa park at the edge of the Taipa old village. It is behind the Taipa Houses, and the library at the Largo do Carmo.
Being a small garden, there isn't a lot to do here. But hey, how many of your friends can say they have had their picture taken in front of a statue of Luis Vaz de Camões? I'm not sure what is up with the pose for this statue, but he was a Portuguese poet, one of the first European settlers in Macau, and an administrator.
Being off to the side, it doesn't get as many visitors as the other nearby sights, but can be a quiet excursion and worth a visit when you are in the area.
Looking through my pictures, I only had a few of the statue. I'll try to remember to take a few more of the rest of the garden, and the views, on my next trip.
Much of the garden and landscaping is in a section in front of the steps leading to the Luis Vaz de Camões statue
A couple of closer pictures of the Luis Vaz de Camões statue. I don't know why this isn't one of the more popular photo spots in Macau ... but it should be.
