Ruins of St. Paul's, Macau

Ruin
Retrace Macau's Christian heritage at Ruins of St. Paul's, one of the region's landmark attractions. Built by the Portuguese in the 17th century, the church was originally one of the largest Christian shrines in Asia. A 19th-century fire destroyed much of the original complex, but the ornate southern facade still stands as a reminder of the building's former grandeur. A steel stairway provides visitors with access to the top, while the onsite museum houses artifacts providing insight into the history and art of Christian faith in the Far East.

  • A real experience to walk through the streets to reach St Pauls. Worth the time and loved the crowds.  more »
  • 就如標題,一個遺址的牌坊,早點去或許拍照會好一點,晚一點抵達都是人,而且每個拍照的人都會不小心亂入,就失去拍照的心情了~  more »

  • Honestly there's not much to see here. Pretty cool walking through the old streets leading up to the ruins with all the shops selling and giving away free samples of pork jerky and almond cookies. Feels like I'm in Costco with all the free samples.
  • Really worth the hustle to get there. The steps and the flowers create the perfect scenery for amazing photographs with the ruins. So much history and amazing architecture all in one. Definitely a must!
  • Beautiful area in old Macau. Very close to Koi Kei bakery which offers samples like every five feet while you walk through the city!
  • A bit uphill but nice to take a lot if you don't mind the big amount of tourists (like yourself)
  • 1 minute attraction after which you only remember the hordes of tourists outside. We only enjoyed the walk up and back through the quieter lanes.
