Ruins of St. Paul, Macao: 31 reviews and 57 photos
This is the most popular landmark in Macau. It was built in between 1602 to 1637, and designed by a Italian Jesuit with the assistant of a Japanese Christian artist named Nagasaki. In 1835, the church was destroyed by a fire during a typhoon. Only the facade remains together with impressive stone steps and the mosaic floors. The facade has a dove with wing outstretched on the top, followed by a women stepping on a seven-headed hydra, and four Jesuits' images with oriental themes at the bottom of the wall.
There is a museum behind the wall.
