"Ruins of St Paul" Concelho de Macau Favorite Tip by aukahkay
Concelho de Macau Favorites: 29 reviews and 42 photos
Favorite thing: The most famous landmark of Macau is the ruins of St Paul. St. Paul's Cathedral was built by the Jesuits in 1602, and destroyed by fire in 1835 except for its stone facade with carvings that tell the story of the Catholic Church in Asia. Do not stop at the front of the facade but continue under the ruins. There is a crypt containing the remains of Christian matyrs.
Fondest memory: The historic center of Macau is like a slice out of Mediterranean Europe. If not for the signages in Chinese, I could have imagined that I was somewhere in the Iberian peninsula.
