The Ruins of St. Paul Cathedral in Macau are a very interesting sight to see. What you get to see at this site is not the entire cathedral that was but its tall and imposing façade that stands freely in its place.
Being a symbol of Macau’s Portuguese past, this tall and beautifully preserved stone slab attracts thousands of tourists every day. The road leading up to it has pretty grass designs that enhance the subtlety of the brown facade. The area around and behind it is worth exploring. There is also a crypt underneath the buildings that some tourists like to visit. In it lies a museum displaying religious scripture and other artifacts from the church.

Ruins Of St Paul, Macau Reviews - Write a Review
It's a beautiful fragment of Macau's colonial past, and we loved how it had Chinese influences in its design and biblical verses written in mandarin as well. There were many tourists when we visited, especially tour groups. I would suggest going up higher to where the fort was to get a better view of the ruins.
Great piece of Portuguese history, remarkable ruins of the cathedral that use to stand. The ruins are a short walk from Senado Square. The fort is located east of the ruins. Definitely a place you want to see when you are in Macau.
This is one of the tourist spot in Macau. At the side of this great architecture, it has one street full of good food for free tasting! I love this place! 😂
I have forgotten the number of times I came here since my first visit in 1974. While the story of the monument would be the same, those visiting it should have many other stories to tell. Whether I visit it at day or night, it would relive some of the happiest moments of my life!
Beautiful relic. Worth a quick visit. There are tons of nice small shops and restaurants around.
