A very popular site for locals and visitors. Interesting to tour the ruins. Also make sure to check out the adjacent Fort.

Crowded but worth the visit. Would suggest early morning for less crowds. Also take the time to walk up the hill to the fort and museum. Great views across Macau

This was an interesting attraction. Good viewing spots. Lots of photo places. Plus there is a CR (restroom) on the right side.

The site is full of history and modern stuff. Feel yourself in Portugal while you are basically only Chinese people... The remaining history is counterbalancing the modernity creating a strange environment. Worth to be sawn.

A standing piece of structure as a reminder of history. We visited both during the day and at night. It was a pretty sight during the night when lighted up.

This is another must go to place to show you have been to Macau. its just a front of a church but the walk getting here and the hype when you get here is an experience altogether Everyone must take a photo here.

IMHO, the location, surrounding gardens, and the view itself are amazing. Unfortunately, I cannot say the same about the ruins. The place is crazy crowded. Tour guides (at least those we met) are useless - they either do not know the history or hide it...More

Great place to visit. Amazing historical structures. Guide essential to explain the history. Has good road side shops for snacks.

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
