After a day of walking around the bustling streets of Macao, I visited this beautiful facade in the evening. Groups of people were casually milling about on the steps leading up to the Ruins. The structure itself is still quite grand.

I dont know much about Christianity, but this is must visit place in Macao. It was sad to see the church in such a bad condition. It could have been restored. But the front wall is the testimony of its history.

It wasn’t just a brief walk around the ruins. Not much to see for me as I didn’t want to take my young child to the crypt.

This is the symbol of Macau and puts you in the Old Town of Macau proper. There are plenty of nearby areas to see while there including the old fort next door, back alley shopping, and Filipino food area, and casinos.

My suggestion is take a taxi straight up to St Paul first then from there,u can go down the slope on the left to Senado Square. As will be tough of pushing a stroller up the slope to St Paul

Hi! I would definitely recommend going to the Ruins of St. Pauls, not only because of the ruins itself but because of the surrounding shops and food places nearby which will keep you busy. Once you've walked down the steps... More
