Rua de Ferreira do Amaral

  Rua de Ferreira do Amaral begins at Rua Filipe O'Costa  and Avenida de Sidónio Pais in the east and meets Avenida do Conselheiro Ferreira de Almeida, Rua do Campo and Calçada do Poço in the west.
  Constructed in between 1847 and 1848, Rua de Ferreira do Amaral was given its Portuguese name first before it had a Chinese name, but the meanings of the two names do not coincide with each other.  The Portuguese name was derived from the name of the Macao Governor, Ferreira do Amaral, to commemorate his road construction project and was officially announced in Boletim do Governo de Macau (Bulletin of the Government of Macao) on 16 July, 1869. The Chinese name of the street was already documented in “Cadastro das Vias Públicas de Macau” (Cadastre of Public Roads of Macao) published in 1905. Its Chinese name came from the location of the street, being located at the foot of Guia Hill.
