everyone come here for a photo memory. Nothing much to do here, expect a lot of people so be patient to get your perfect Kodak moment.

Walk up to the ruins, snap a couple of pics and walk down. That's pretty much it for the Ruins of St. Paul. Nothing much in the way of scenery other than the nearby Senado Square.

Not too crowded, as I expected. The path going to the site is quite narrow. After a lot of free (taste) food up there, finally we reach the site. The view is spectacular! We want to reserve our energy for the day, so we didn't' climb the stairs. We've just snap a couple of pictures and move on.

We loved it, the ruins are a centre point for the must have photos and loads to see as... More
