Ruins Of St Paul - Review

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.

Macau visitors love this spot as there are also plenty of hawkers around the area selling very tasty authentic Macau food.

Ruins Of St Paul, Macau Reviews

  • The landmark of Macau, you need to go here and take picture in this area then you have successfully landed in Macau. It is a ruin, indeed which you can view front part of the Church, going there is quite easy, you can follow signs on the street. Nearby, there is a local food that you can find, some peanuts sweets, and Portuguese egg tart. A little bit further there is a church whereby you can pray inside the church. The guard said that there is still mass every Sunday.

  • One of most visited historic place to visit while in Macau. So many tourists talking photos in around and of themselves. They tried to preserve what is left of the ruins. There is only one facade of it left standing, braced by steel frames on the back. There is also a museum of sort underground and they ask you to be respectful of the historical artifacts by not speaking inside.

  • Veryinteresting and important place in the history of Macau. Highly recommend a visit here and also to the very interesting Macau Museum across the way. The museum is one of the best municipal museums I've ever visited; in fact, I would say that it was the highlight of our first day of walking around Macau. Be sure and check it out!

  • Great place for walk and photography... This is the remaining of the church, crowded but you may get a good shot if you patience enough to wait. After explore here you may walk down to all the stalls for souvenir and foods, especially for the Egg tart....

  • It's an impressive structure and a great photo opportunity. But... Every single visitor to Macau has this place on it's to do list. There are sooooooo many people there that's it's actually hard to walk. But once you get there it's all worth it. I also recommend going up to the fortress and enjoy the beautiful views from it. There is also a museum that I didn't have a chance to explore.
