Escape the heat of Senado Square and the famous Ruins and step across the street towards the Fort. On the gentle ascent, you will encounter this handsome statue, and enjoy the green and the shade as well!

One of the interesting things to see near the Ruins of St. Paul is the bronze statue of Italian Jesuit priest Matteo Ricci, situated in the area where St. Paul's college once stood.

This is a 2.2 metre tall statue was created in 2010 by local sculptor Vong Ka Long. It shows Matteo Ricci in religious attire, grasping a religious scroll or important document in his left hand, while beginning to raise his right hand as if about to speak of something profound or significant.

Matteo Ricci is considered an important early Christian figure in this part of the world for having fostered greater understanding between Chinese and Western cultures during his time in Macau over 400 years ago and for helping establish Chinese Christian practice.

In the end, this is of many interesting sculptures and statues you can see around Macau. Have a look for it if you are planning to visit the Ruins of St. Paul and Monte Fort, it is located in this area and not difficult to spot amongst the ruins, walking paths and green vegetation in the area.

This statute is standing next to the St Pauls ruins and on the way up to the fortress on the right hand side if you are facing the ruins directly.

The statue of Matteo Ricci is located outside Monte Forte on the grounds which previously stood the College of St. Paul's. It is a neat depiction of the important late-16th century Jesuit priest from Italy, who spent a fair portion of his life in Macau.

You can conveniently see the Matteo Ricci statue as part of your visit to the Ruins of St. Paul's and Monte Forte. There is a small plaque next to the monument with historical information related to the priest, his work in early colonial Macau and China.

The statue stood besides Ruins of St Paul. It reminded visitors about foreign missionaries travelled long way to Macau to spread the Gospel.

When visiting the Ruins of St. Paul, this statue is just a couple of steps away. This is a popular attraction to tourists visiting the place.

Very close to Museum of Macau (1 min walk), and the Ruins of 17th century ruins of facade of church (1 min walk). This statue is a popular spot for "selfies" and it is amusing to see people siddle up to the statue and take their own photo. Set in tropical garden. Ramps for disabled tourist, no steps, makes this easy to get to see.
