We almost thought of sipping it as its a cab ride from venetian but in the end I m glad we visited it. Worth a visit. Do not skip it. Close to a very nice local market as well.

This is a beautiful are to wonder about in Macau. There is so much more than just the ruins. If you stick simply to the ruins, you are missing out. Head to the right of the ruins and there are gardens, massive aged trees, and a walk up to the Macau museum that has greenery, and great sights. We also got to see a lot of the local elderly folk getting about with their different exercises, including a group of elderly women learning pairs dancing and another group doing tai chi. It was marvellous to behold.

The food and shops around here are good also, but if food isn't really on your agenda, I would suggest heading here nice and early in the morning. Macau sleeps in, so the shops and what not don't really open until 10.30am-11am at the earliest. If you get here by 8am or 9am, you will miss the bulk of the tourists and get to wonder and take in the sights without the noise and hustle bustle.

We came for the day from Hong Kong on a Saturday and the center of Macau and the area around the Ruins of St Paul's was overwhelmingly crowded. This rather ruined the experience as there were just too many people. The ruin of St Paul really is a most popular tourist spot although everywhere on that day was mobbed. The Ruins of St Paul's is a great example of Portuguese architecture dating back to the 17th-century. The church is dedicated to Saint Paul the Apostle and today is one of Macau most sought out tourist sight. In its time, it was one of the most largest Catholic Churches in Asia. In 2005, it was officially listed as part of the Historic Centre of Macau, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Actually this is the most touristy place in Macau besides of its casinos. Will be very crowded at weekend or holiday, so came here early to take the best photos without photobombs. Walk from iconic Senado Square, you will finds alleys with lot of shops, St. Dominic Church, & etc until you reach the spot. There is Starbucks shop if you're a tumbler collector & souvenir shop too. Eat eggtart, drink macha latte, sit on the ladder step & enjoy the view.
