This area is always really busy and full of people, but it is a nice view and good spot for photo taking. We like to get an original pork chop bun and sit on the wall people watching.

Must visit when in Macau. Ruins of St Paul's is an iconic landmark that is associated with Macau. It is located at the end of Senado Square. Take some time to admire this iconic landmark before climbing the stairs as the view of St Paul's from the bottom is breathtakingly beautiful. When reach the top, take some time as well to admire the façade of what’s left of a cathedral that it’s still standing here until today.

The ruins were historically beautiful & would be a perfect place for a photoshoot, however I cannot imagine how someone is able to conduct photoshoot in a super-crowded place like this. We enjoy the historical walk from A-Ma Temple to Senado Square, but once we get to the ruins it was a tremendous effort to reach it since the passageways were super crowded and full of rude people who keep walking despite there was an object (a.k.a. another human being) in front of them! To make it worse, it was raining when we got there. It's still a must see for you guys who visit Macau for the 1st timr, but I won't bother to go again. It's enough!

You must visit this place when you come to Macau especially if you love taking pictures!

There are a few stalls beside the ruins of St. Paul's selling souvenir and i notice the price are more cheaper from the shop along the way to this place.

Please go and check it yourself!

It's really just the front facade of the Cathedral that's left but it's still a must see if you're in Macau. Walk around the hill next to it to see a view of Macau island.
