Photographer's Note

Senado Square, or Senate Square (Portuguese: Largo do Senado), is a large square in Macau, China, part of the UNESCO Historic Centre of Macau World Heritage Site.

It houses a number of elegant and historic buildings., including the Holy House of Mary, the white building seen here to the right of the gateway. This was established as a branch of the Santa Casa da Misericσrdia, being built in 1569 on the orders of the Bishop of Macao.

It served as a medical clinic and several other social welfare structures in early Macau. It later became an orphanage and refuge for the widows of sailors lost at sea.

The gateway would seem to be a temporary structure and masks a large fountain when seen from this angle.
