      This is actually one of the historical sites in Macau. Since Macau is quite near to Hongkong, we managed to have a 1 day trip to this place. Going to Macau from Hongkong, you need to get yourself to MTR Sheung Wan Station exit d, go inside Shuntak Centre 3rd floor and simply book a Turbojet to Macau. The fare would cost you HK$ 138 during day time and HK$ 176 at night.

      Going here is easy, you just have to get yourself to “Leal Senado Square” by riding Bus #3 from the ferry terminal. You can also ride a free shuttle bus,

      simply take the Grand Lisboa Hotel bus cause this is quite near to Leal Senado square. Although buses are everywhere and most of them passes by to this european architecture. Again a map is necessary but readily available at the airport or even at the Senado square itself. Upon arrival, you just need to follow the arrows pointing you to the site. It’s easy to find for the arrows are easily seen. The site is specifically located at the end of the senado square simply turn right, you then be seeing an alley with a Ruins of St. Paul arrow, crossed the alley ...

      • and you’ll find the Ruins there.

        On the street going to the site, you’ll be encountering several stores offering chinese delicacies. They even offering free taste and samples of their products. So a good bite is on hand before the main trip.

        When we arrived at the church, we can only see the front part where the entrance is located. The whole part was destroyed leaving only some remnants of the foundation and the destruction it went thru. We can actually see them when we enter the area. They were casted on the floor with a glass protecting them. So we can basically step on

        it. They also provided man-made stairs so one can go up to the church’s wishing area.

        Nearby the area is a mini museum & tombs so that the people will remember the destruction this church went through. It’s kinda’ funny cause me and my friend is a bit scared upon entering, it’s like we’re going to see a ghost or something.

        This is a must see for all people who wants to visit Macau. It’s educational as you will have a great oppotunity to see old structures and museum with a twist to Macau’s modern life. And don’t forget to make a wish for it might came true.
