Casa Garden

The Casa Garden (Chinese: 東方基金會會址) is a small parkette located in Macau Peninsula, Macau, China. The area is the headquarters of the Macau delegation of the Orient Foundation.[1]

History[edit]

Built in 1770, the park was originally the residence of a wealthy Portuguese merchant Manuel Pereira. At a later period, it was rented out to the English East India Company and was used to house the directors of the Macau branch of the company. In 2005, it was officially enlisted as part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site Historic Centre of Macau.

Architecture[edit]

The park contains the old residence, Old Protestant Cemetery and an art gallery.
