    Old school symbol of Macau. The walk from Lago de Senado to the St Paul's ruins is a journey of local architecture, life, and flavors. Much to see and taste along the way!

    Seriously- I had more fun on the walk to the place, lots of yummy Macau snacks to fill up while people watching! It go quite hot by the time we got to the ruins, so try to go earlier in the day or evening.

    Great photo spot and people watching area -- shops lining the way from here to Senado Square are interesting!

    It's the symbol of Macau but the plaza leading up to it is cooler! Watch out for pickpockets through the crowded street up to it. The history is interesting but on a hot summer day-the museum gives a little more insight.

Description

The Ruins of St. Paul's are the remains of the Portuguese cathedral dedicated to the apostle, Saint Paul. The original structure housed St. Paul's College, and the cathedral itself. Finished in 1602, the cathedral represented the Catholic church in Asia. In 1835, a typhoon hit Macau, started a fire in the cathedral and destroyed the structures. The Ruins of St. Paul's are all that remain of this once great structure. The remains today are on the list of famous landmarks in Macau and, as of 2005, are recognized by UNESCO as a historic center.
