“Historical Building”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012

This is the landmark of Macau, if you take a picture here and without a word, people will know immediately you have been to Macau, this is how famous it is. Although after so many fire and century passed, it left only the huge wall, kind of disappointed but I am quite impressed of the Architecture of the buildings.

This is the tourist spot and most tourist will be here for it.

“St. Paul´s - Just a facade.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

When you come up to the remains of St. Pauls Cathedral all that´s left is just a facade. In July it was to hot, so I decided not to climb the stairs and take just a picture and have a coffee on a terrass.

“worth visiting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

Lots of people in the morning, if your into photography, best time to go is late night. Try the authentic Chinese food along the way to the ruins.

I was really fascinated with the facade of the Cathedral! Unfortunately, the place is so crowded with visitors that i could not take a nice photo of the Ruins.

“Still Standing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012

20 years ago I was there and it is still standing. Nothing much just the frontage of a burnt down church. There were so many people and the tour guide had to do the commentary in the bus before we reach the sight.
