Rua da Fonte da Inveja

  Rua da Fonte da Inveja begins at Avenida de Sidónio Pais and ends at the exit portal of Túnel do Monte da Guia.
  It was already documented in “Cadastro das Vias Públicas e Outros Lugares da Cidade de Macau” (Cadastre of Public Roads and Other Places of the City of Macao), published in 1925. “Fonte da Inveja” in its Portuguese name refers to a spring at the corner of the street in the old days. Its Chinese name is “I Long Hou”. The site of the spring is located near the exit portal of Túnel do Monte da Guia to Avenida de Horta e Costa.
  The Flora Garden, situated at the northern section of Rua da Fonte da Inveja, housed the I Long Hou Mansion, which was once the residence of the governors of Macao. A kindergarten was founded at the site of the Mansion in October 1934 after the governors moved out. It was renamed as J ardim de Infância D. José de Costa Nunes in 1942.
