#1 of 282 in Things to do in Macau
Retrace Macau's Christian heritage at Ruins of St. Paul's, one of the region's landmark attractions. Built by the Portuguese in the 17th century, the church was originally one of the largest Christian shrines in Asia. A 19th-century fire destroyed much of the original complex, but the ornate southern facade still stands as a reminder of the building's former grandeur. A steel stairway provides visitors with access to the top, while the onsite museum houses artifacts providing insight into the history and art of Christian faith in the Far East.

  • Nice tourist attraction. Studying it's interesting history then actually seeing it is worth the trip. without knowing the background though, it's just a big wall.
  • The Church is amazing. It survived 3 fires and the face still looks gorgeous! Going there makes you feel full as you taste the cookies, egg tart and tapa!
