We enjoyed here so much! Going there we love the shops and the unlimited free tastes of pork and beef jerkies, sweets of different kinds that are very ideal for bringing some to families and friends back home. This is where we also tasted the famous egg tart which is yummy.

An interesting walk through the square and streets of the historical Portuguese area to see this one remaining wall in all its splendour.

Every time in Macau we visit the Ruins. We love the "walk" to the ruins, there is a fantastic vibe about the area, the shops selling superb custard tarts, exquisite pressed pork, souvenirs. All visitors comment on the above, but few realize, that this ruins dates back to 16th century and is often incorrectly referred as a cathedral, which it... More

This is a lovely setting with a grand layer of stairs in front. Don't like stairs then there is the footpath to use instead. The ruins are perched on a hill free entry though there is little to see when you walk through the arch, some ruins and some tombs. Lovely to see history preserved.

This ruin brings a lot of tourists to this area, and it is worth a visit if you are in Macau. Although there is only a little piece of an old church left, this ruins will impress you, as they are on top of some stairs waiting for the perfect photo.
