St Pauls ruins speak to the amazing and valuable connection between Europe and China forged 450 years ago, which endures today. It’s a lovely stroll up gentle stairs to the surviving facade. Volunteers abound and are keen to help. Don’t miss the Crypt.

We visited here when staying at the Cotai strip. Worth a visit around Old Macau and interesting to see the ruins in contrast to the new, glitzy Macau on the strip.

The ruins and the surrounding streets are interesting, provides a glimpse of history of Portuguese Macao. It could get very crowded though regardless of day of visit.
