The tourist centre of Macau away from the Casinos. Great view of it from the ruins and it has a real old world feel with the cobbles etc... No need to buy food as they give away so many free samples.

After Monte Forte and the ruins of St. Paul’s Cathedral, we walked through the street to St. Dominic’s Church. My impressions of the area are as follows: • The steps of St. Paul’s Cathedral leading to the street reminded me of the Spanish Steps in Rome. Like the steps in Rome, it leads you to a narrow street (narrower than... More

This is one of the major main tourist streets or attractions to visit while in Macau. At the very top of the stairs at the end of the street is the ruins of St. Paul's Cathedral. From the top of the stairs is a good photo of the street and buildings. The street is super busy with tourist so just... More

It's a bustling street leading to the ruins of St. Paul. Almost all souvenir shops, bakeries and food stalls are located here. It can be uncomfortable for some to walk in a crowded place but do experience strolling here as it gives a feel of the busyness of modern Macau. Stop for a while and sample Macau's famous egg tarts... More

This is the approach street to Ruins of St Pauls and likely it will be crowded with fellow travellers. However it is experience to walk the cobblestones,be tempted by some of the souvenir shops or Macau's famous egg tarts. You'll also see some side lanes and alleyways (explore......it'll show you a side of Macau that is absolutely "local").....stop at the... More

The street is not long but full of shops which sell almost the same local snacks - pork jerky and almond biscuit. Boring place to shop but the nearby sightseeing spots such as St.Dominic's Church, Ruínas da Antiga Catedral de São Paulo ( World Heritage) and the Fortaleza do Monte are worthy to see.

lots of people, shops are mostly similar. Mostly selling the almond cookies. The building structure minus the people around you, will make you feel that you are in Europe. The influence from Portugal is really deep

Tripadvisor should pay more attention to naming conventions. There is no "Dasanba street" in Macau. There is either Rua do Sao Paolo (Saint Paul street, if somebody is eager to translate) or hieroglyphs set in order to imitate the name, actually sounding like "ta sun pa" = "da Sao Pa(olo)"
