If you go to macau, your holiday wouldn’t complete if you are not visiting this site. Very instagramable place. Don’t forget to try portugase egg tart on the way to this place. For the access just 10 min walk from hotel Lisboa casino Please enjoy

This ruins was a church, but then it got burnt up and became one of the most famous spot in Macau! How amazing is that? Plus there are so many things to buy near there! What an amazing place!

Everyone heads for the ruins and have their photo taken on the steps. Only the facade remains today but behind it you can see the original foundations of the building. We passed by here three times and each time it was crowded, but best time...More

You will pass by Senado Square on the way to St Paul. We were there on Sunday afternoon, it was so cramp and I could barely walk without being squished by someone. You will pass by lots of food stalls. The ruins is very pretty...More

The most famous landmark of the city. It will also fill your curiosity of Portuguese heritage as you will see almost all signage in that european language even in TV the moment you landed.

My suggestion is take a taxi straight up to St Paul first then from there,u can go down the slope on the left to Senado Square. As will be tough of pushing a stroller up the slope to St Paul
