Owner description: Considered Macau’s most famous landmark, the ruins of this 16th-century cathedral features a spectacular façade with intricate carvings by Japanese monks.

Okay, this is one of the original symbols of Macau. They have a small museum behind it with relics of the church, but not more that you would find in any given church in Europe. However, it certainly is the number one backdrop for showing you were in Macau and a must visit when visiting the old town.

Very busy and very much like the Spanish steps, but a bit more open. The Fort next door also a lovely walk with view toward the Casinos.

Despite the only remaining part of the cathedral is part of the façade the ambience was wonderful. It was built in 1580, destroyed by fire in 1601, rebuilt in 1602 and again destroyed by fire in 1835.
Walk down the steps and after some 1.200 shops you will arrive in Senado square. There is a great ice cream shop on the right not far from the steps where you can indulge in some wicked ice cream concoctions.

We came in from the upper back side and I was disappointed. Think it would have been much better to walk up the stairs and enjoy the walk.
