I have been to St. Paul's a few times now (each time I visit Macau I tend to visit it) and every time there are a lot of people there. It is worth visiting, see some of the history and some views of Macau and the Macau museum is close by.

You must visit the ruins of Saint Paul's church in Macau or else you have not visited Macau. It's beautiful and I'm so glad I was there.

So after the fire all that remains is the front of the church. It is ok, but I personally do not see much of an attraction at this site.

A lot of people flocking to see this historic spot. It's so majestic, it's worth the steps and all the bumps from the people passing by. Gives me historic chills knowing how wonderful this place truly is!
