With the restoration work on the exterior façade of the buildings at 8 and 10, Pátio da Eterna Felicidade completed and the outdoor space at 14, Pátio da Eterna Felicidade opened, visitors can appreciate the architectural appearance of Pátio da Eterna Felicidade.

Currently, there are nearly 200 streets named “pátio” or “beco” in Macau. Among them, the area of Pátio da Eterna Felicidade near the Ruins of St. Paul’s College and Freguesia de Santo António is relatively large and has been better preserved. It features traditional Chinese residential buildings of varying heights but in a coherent style, showing the distinctive characteristics of pátios. This exhibition will present the daily lives of residents in pátios in the past through illustrations, videos and photographs in a diverse and interesting way, themed on three essential aspects in our lives – “food”, “lifestyle” and “playtime”, revealing the culture and customs of people living in patios and alleys in bygone days. In collaboration with local illustrator Un Chi Wai, the exhibition features a variety of scenes and characters inspired by life in these places, making it a lively and interesting experience for the public.
